Decent, portable, bike for uni?
Unfortunately, I didn't get my parking permit in in time, and I'm pretty sure my dorm is over 1 mile from my parking location ;_;
Sure, that's an 8 minute light run (7 with good time), but still, if I need to get anywhere looking semi-professional (and not drenched in sweat), that just won't work.
Can anyone recommend a fair-priced, portable bike (I'll need to be storing in a mid-sized car, most likely). I'll be traversing pavement and light grass, but terrain versatility would be nice. I'll probably be wearing a mid-large sized backpack housing a 17" laptop, as well, so that's a factor. I'm looking in the $350+- category right now, but I could spend a bit more, if the bike deserved it.
Also, I'll need recommendations on security gear (locks, best way to prevent theft, etc), so any help is welcome.
My area code is 40513, if anyone wants to find a bike in my area =)
Thanks in advance,
