    Specialized Globe Work 3

    What do you think of it? http://www.specialized.com/gb/gb/bikes/globe/work/work3

    What are the good alternatives that are equally well-equipped and equally upright?

    Thanks!

    Multi-purpose totally upright bike primarily used for commuting around city (work, university, shopping), including uphill.

    YMMV,but with DC's roads and my carpel tunnel,I'm not a fan of straight blade alloy forks on alloy frames. Depending on your hills,you may also want more than a Nexus 7.

    You can look up the figures, but the geometry looks like the Sirrus'. In which case you can also test a Sirrus (unless you are sold on internal gears for some reason). The Sirrus has a steel or carbon fork depending on the model.
