I am looking for a new city bike (I've posted a couple times) and am really attracted to the look of the Dutch style bikes (though I don't want an actual Dutch bike because I have to carry it up stairs). I finally actually have the money to buy one and hope to get one within the next 2 weeks or so. I need it to be reasonably light, at least 7 gears, and loop or similar style frame. I am currently looking mostly at the:
Public C7 (I like the simpler look to it and the mega range gives a really low first gear, which I LOVED)
Linus Dutchi 8
Civia Twin City
Opinions? Pros and cons?
