My first post! Iíve been reading the posts for a couple of weeks and see that some other guys in the UK have asked questions about what bike to get if they are going to commute.
Iíve got a similar question. I think the commute part has been answered but what Iím after is the one-bike-fits all. Like some of the others here I will occasionally want to put one on a train to go into London and then cycle around the city to meetings. Iím not after a tourer as I will only have one bag with me for a laptop, phone etc.
So for me, itís the ideal combination of something small enough to take on the train and also suitable and fun enough to be an everyday bike (roads and cyclepaths). What is important is that it will be a bike I will actually want to ride.
I want to get it at a UK shop, so I guess some makes will be out as theyíre not normally stocked here. So please bear that in mind with your suggestions.
Iím a Triathlete, so I donít hang about! The Domestic Goddess has sanctioned something up to £1000 or $2000 equivalent Ė thanks to whomever it was that mentioned the scheme through your employer!
Fast, fun, small Ė is there really a one-bike-does-it-all?
Really looking forward to your advice.
