TOKYOBIKE VS TEMPLE: WHICH BIKE IS BEST FOR YOU?

While both bike brands produce stylish city bikes, there are a few key differences to note when deciding which bike to buy.

HOW DOES TOKYOBIKE COMPARE TO TEMPLE?

BUILD QUALITY

Build quality is crucial to look out for when choosing a city bike. The build quality of a bike encompasses the material strength, protective paint finish, and high-spec components. These elements ensure durability, reliable performance, and reduced maintenance, essential for a long-lasting and enjoyable urban cycling experience.

WEIGHT

Weight is an important consideration when judging the usability of a bike. A lightweight bike can make riding a much more enjoyable experience, as it requires less effort to pedal, can tackle longer distances, and ride up hills. What's more, it can feel like a slog lifting a heavy bike up steps to your house, office or bike shed. Lightweight bikes can make life that little bit easier.

VERSATILITY

When choosing a bicycle, versatility is crucial. It enables a smooth transition from the dynamic city streets to serene countryside trails, which ultimately enhances your cycling experience. This adaptability offers the freedom to explore varied landscapes without the need for multiple specialised bikes.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

We'll let you decide! In summary, both the quality of build and the aesthetic appeal are key factors to consider.

Temple Cycles excels with its superior build quality, using Reynolds steel frames for an optimal balance of strength and lightness, and high-quality Shimano gears for reliable performance. The hand-built, lightweight wheels enhance handling, and the durable powder-coat paint finish surpasses Tokyobike's single coat finish in resilience. This meticulous attention to detail in every aspect of construction makes Temple bikes not only visually striking but also reliably durable and efficient.

Tokyobike, on the other hand, offers a different approach with its chromoly steel frames and factory-made wheels. While these choices contribute to a cheaper price point, they may not provide the same level of durability and performance as Temple Cycles.
