Hi, I am just now getting interested in commuting to my classes at school. I know absolutely nothing about bikes and need help picking one out. Some factors that may impact what bike I get are that I want to be able to ride the bike as a commuter without any problems, but am also looking to get into some heavier riding when my baseball career is over at the end of the spring. Also you should know that I go to school on the hilliest campus in America. The price range I'd be willing to pay is anything under $1500 dollars. Thanks for your help glad I found this site!
