looking for bike recommendations for Oly
I tried the search function but it seems out of order for tonight.
What I am looking for: an internal gear hub bike for Olympia. I have an awesome 3-speed 1953 Raleigh, but I need a little more get up and go for the hills around this town. I am fine with a semi-custom (actually, I think that's what I want) but not sure where to look. I thought I wanted a Dutch bike, like WorkCycles, but when I rode one, it wasn't my thing. I want something fairly upright, with all the bells & whistles of a Dutch ride (fully encased chain, lights, a rack) but that moves up hills nicely.
Also, any shop recommendations here would be appreciated. The first place I took my bike to was a disappointment.
