I've been reading and hearing that an urban bike is ideal for city commuting. I currently ride a Raleigh hybrid, and am getting tired of repairing it on a regular basis, so I'm looking to get a new one.
I've been to a few local shops, and I was recommended something with internal gears and disk or internal breaks (I'm also tired of continuously adjusting my v-breaks). I've been told that internal gears involve less maintenance, especially when it comes to winter riding. I'm thinking of getting something from the States to save some money, but was wondering if you could recommend anything more specific that I'd go for in this case. Not looking for anything very pricey as well as not too nice so it's not overly appealing to thieves, however I'd rather have quality parts then something that's in need of constant repair. Thank you in advance.
