Preview: Torker for my commute

Look what arrived at my doorstep Friday morning!

Can you guess what I’ll be riding around town in the coming weeks… and what I’ll be assembling?

In the aftermath of the theft of my beloved Toro, I really have been without a good around-town bike – complete with fenders and rack – and one that is built for the rigors of getting around the urban jungle of Chicago on two wheels. So, to keep me rolling, I’m now on the job reviewing a bike for our friends at Torker. (Thank you, Torker!)

Stay tuned to see how she looks once unwrapped and in motion. Brownie points to readers who guesses which Torker model I’ll be riding.

    The Graduate?

    Interurban, based on your Toro ride.

    I ride a Graduate every day, all 4 seasons and it is the perfect bike for me. Hope you enjoy yours, and if it is an interurban I’m looking forward to the review.

    not the Graduate or the Interurban, though I would happily ride either of those. Keep the guesses coming… the bike will be unveiled soon.

    Too bad it is not an Interurban, that’s a great bike. One of my coworkers here had one (until it was sadly stolen from her apartment while she was on vacation).

    Actually, I have no idea what Torker makes other than the Graduate and the Interurban.

    We’ve already reviewed the Interurban, and the Graduate, AND the KB2. Keep guessing, everyone!

    OOps. It’d have to be the T300, extra bonuses being the fenders, rack, and kick stand..(?) Has anyone tested it.. looks great!
