I need to get a bike to ride to and from campus everyday. The ride is about 5 miles each way. The problem I have right now is that I am new and don't know very much about the different kinds of bikes. So if anyone could please give me advice on a good bike at a decent price that would be a huge help. I am looking to spend around $300. Also people have been telling me that a road bike wouldn't be able to handle the rough roads of Austin. Is this true?
Thanks a lot,
