At the risk of sounding totally unschooled, I'm hoping people can weigh in on this bike:
I've just started commuting about 25-40km per day, and my little cruiser can't really handle it. I'm looking for an older 10-18 speed, something that doesn't require any different shoes or clothing and that I can lock up outside all day and not worry about. But it would also be great if it had some speed and could stand the bumps and knocks of a 25km to-work bike route.
Thoughts? Any ideas about the kind of thing I could look out for?
Oh yeah, I don't want to spend more than $300 Canadian, so second-hand is it.
