I just bought a Trek Solo Ride 300 last weekend. It has the Shimano internal 7 speed Nexus hub. ($399) I normally ride "conventional" bikes: Trek 6500, Schwinn paramount w/ 10 speed chorus, etc. I bought my 300 because it is very comfortable and the new rack/ bag system that Trek has added is very secure and easy to use. I will be using mine to go shopping and running errands for the most part. This bike is as fast on pavement as my mountain bike is and much more comfortable. The suspension front fork is fine. Our roads around here aren't the best, and it helps take out the bigger bumps. Also, I did test drive the Townie, but I preferred the Trek (nothing against the Townie).
Pain is temporary. It may last a minute, or an hour, or a day, or a year, but eventually it will subside and something else will take its place. If I quit, however, it lasts forever.
