While most great-looking retro bikes forgo the tech that makes riding easier and more fun, Trek embraces both style and substance with the Steel District, an utterly urbane ride that combines timeless aesthetics (fenders, basket, riveted saddle) with modern stuff (mechanical disc brakes, nine-speed Shimano drivetrain), all aboard a vibration-reducing steel frame. Meaning you'll look just as dashing on the way to work – but you'll be going a hell of a lot faster. [$700; trekbikes.com]
