I'm looking for a solid commuter, grocery getter, that won't break the bank and is good in hills and is a solid bike (I'm a 217 lb guy).
This one has 26 inch wheels, looks solid, etc.
I'd put a tubus rack on it, some ortileb back rollers and change out the bars with trekking bars (my preference for more hand positions) and put on some fenders. Other than that, does it look solid? Any thoughts would be appreciated. Price is an issue and this one is moderately priced. There is no used market here, so that is probably out.
