Hey all,

I'm going to be studying abroad in Dublin next January and was wondering what the weather is like, and what type of bike you would recommend. I usually ride fixed (here in Chicago) and was hoping to do so in Dublin but I don't know how flat Dublin is and whether that would be practical. I'm going to be commuting from the suburbs to the Dail (sorry I don't know how to do the accent), I'm not quite sure where I'm living yet, but so long as it's under 15 miles I would like to bike. Also, if you have any suggestions for a good shop in the Dublin area that would be great as well. I need a new bike and thought it would be fun to get it there!

Thanks for the help!
