See what you meen about the lightnesss of the Miele. It's good to have more than one (or 10 ) bikes for that reason also to ride with a friend. When I weighed much more than now, the thought of skinny tire lightweights scared me so I rode a Hybrid .. good luck with the bikes ! Perhaps I'll borrow the Miele.

The Hard Rock and the Kona are great finds, but man oh man, that Miele

BTW, your English is much much better than my French, and I took French for 2 full years in high school and two semesters in college
