Ok so currently I dont have a bike..why? becuase my brother stole it when he went to med school.
I want to get in shape and hate running so I plan to get a bike here in the next week or so. I live in Lancaster PA..which has very nice open roads so I was thinking a nice used road bike like a trek 1000 would be a good starter..and a lot of fun. I found one cheap for 300 or so and am going to go check on it on saturday.
Here is my question on the commuter side. How many of you guys use a road bike to commute? Its pretty skiny in the tire department and was wondering if it was a good commuter bike. I ask this becuase I plan to transfer to Philly in the fall and would be using it to commute to school.
Any help is appretiated. Thanks.
