I have a 10 mile commute ( from bethesda,md - tenleytown metro, dc ), mostly road and some on the trail.
I like something which I can put a rack on, and something which is going to be light and fast.
-I am 5'10, 180 pounds, medium built
-I am going to have my laptop and couple of books in my bookbag
-I will be locking my bike at my tenleytown office and taking shuttle to reston
I guess I need to get a bike ( commuter, preferbly ), a good lock. I have a good bookbag and would like to keep it.
Here are the ones I liked
-- 2007 Super Sport Ultra 2 - Great ride, I liked it and it was coming on a great sale on my LBS - close to $750 out of the door
-- Trek 7.5 - Close to 850 out of the door
Are these good bikes and which would you prefer ?
