OT: Hybrid/commuter bike?
Posted by westernny [Email] (more from westernny) on Thu, 22 Sep 2016 14:49:21
Looking for a decent hybrid/commuter bike for a ten mile daily roundtrip, mostly for just fitness. I have an ancient Peugeot AO-8 10-speed (c. 1967!) but it would need a lot of effort and expense to make it road-worthy in any meaningful way.
I'd like to get something better than what's available in the big-box stores, despite the fact that I'd have to run the LBS (local bike shop) "gauntlet" of folks interested in selling me 'way too much bike. I really want a hybrid/commuter type bike, with gearing for the hills, flat bars for upright riding.
I saw the Jamis Commuter 2 online for about $350 delivered, new in box, 2 year old model. I'd probably have a go at assembling it myself, but could take it to one of their local dealers if necessary. There are some comparable bikes from Trek and others out there, as well.
Any Saab-listers recently purchase a bike like this?
