'Best' hybrid/commuter review article
A friend pointed me today to thewirecutter.com, and I found some interesting, thorough reviews.
This review of hybrid/commuter bikes
came through with some pretty solid options, with the Marin Fairfax SC1 coming out on top, or runner-up Fuji Absolute 1.9 if you want disc brakes.
The most interesting part of that review though for me was the link to The Denny
. (on the review page, scroll to the bottom paragraph or search for "What to look forward to"). Although the Denny didn't make it into production
, it is very innovative, including my favorite concept, a rectangular handlebar (kind of like a touring bar) that can quick-release and double as a U-lock.
