Looking For A (General Purpose) Bike, Take 2. Recommendations?
My KHS Urban X grew legs and walked... looking for a new bike.
A hybrid seems to be optimal for me. I'll mainly use it to go to the store, haul a baby in the trailer and a weekend ride for 10-15 miles. Most of this will be done in the city. There are hills here and there. Budget is under $650.
- disk brakes
- ability to hook up racks, paniers, attach trailers, etc.
- no front suspension
- preferably alluminum frame
I have a Diamondback discount through employer, but not sure if those are worth spending the cash on and not even sure how big the discount is (just checked... for example - Interval Elite can be had for $450 through work). Not sure if a cheaper pricepoint makes it worth it.
Anyway... pls recommend away. I've read a bunch of threads, still quite overwhelmed.
