A commuting bicycle should have three key elements: comfort, durability, and reliability when you need it. BMC borrowed a little engineering magic from almost every style of bike they make to give the Alpenchallenge the perfect balance of performance and pleasure — meaning you’ll never think twice about heading out for a ride. Quick handling characteristics, clean lines, and simple integrated designs prove that fun and function can be the same thing.
The Alpenchallenge THREE is packed with slick features that make it a joy to ride and a breeze to own. The hydroformed aluminum frame has internal cable routing and integrated fender mounts for a stealth look. Disc brakes come standard, and the 2x9 speed drivetrain makes short work of steep city hills while giving you enough gear range to cruise comfortably. Shimano components are used throughout the build to make your life simpler with their durability and ease of maintenance.
