Hybrid or Road Bike for Commuter??
Hey all, I believe this is my first post, though I've been lurking here for a month or so. I have a quick question that I'd like some opinions on.
I want to start commuting to work, about 10 miles each way, all pavement, lots of hills. Initially, I started looking at utility bikes, like Trek's Bellville or Allant, because of, well, the utility factor. I've also looked at Cannondale's Quick and Badboy and others in the same category; all around $700-$800. After swinging through REI after dinner tonight, though, I started to consider more roadbike-styled bicycles with drop handlebars, which I could add a rack to.
I already own a Cannondale Prophet which I use for trail riding, so should I get a hybrid or just get the roadbike to commute with?
I appreciate ALL help, suggestions, comments, etc. and respectfully request that you leave the flaming at the door if someone has an opinion about this bike or that bike.
