City living has its ups and downs no doubt, but by far one of the most beneficial aspects of urban dwelling is the non-necessity of owning a car. Especially true of condensed cities and towns, living within walking or biking distance from school, work or even the grocery store, greatly reduces the stress of driving and saves you money on gas in the process.

Such is the motivation behind Chicago-based Heritage Bicycles. Since the 1970s these commuter bikes have been built in the Windy City and enjoyed some significant success over their tenure (rumor has it Jay-Z owns a Heritage cruiser). They’re hand-welded from steel and each bike comes equipped with handsome saddles, old-school mustache handlebars, and double-alloy rims. This single speed model, called the Chief, alludes to the old commuter days of 1970s Chicago and comes with both a front and rear rack to support any auxiliary items to carry around additional necessities. Customize your own on their site or pick out one of the several ready-built bikes. Priced around $1,000. [Purchase]
