I was planning on getting the Breezer Downtown EX but this bike caught my eye online PUBLC V7. I was wondering if this would be a better bike or not. I am still pretty green when it comes to good quality bikes, so any help would be appreciated with correct sizing and stuff like that. If you also have any suggestions regarding bikes that would be pretty helpful too.
I would be using this bike for a ~5 mile or so commute with one big hill near the end, I am 5'8 and around 196 lbs. My budget would be ~$600 but I could go a bit higher depending on feedback. Thanks for the help in advance, and have a great day.
