    family and commuter bike

    I'm looking for a good bike to double as a commuter and weekend rider with the family (child seat will be on the back or front.) I have a short commute (3 miles) but need to take BART (the SF bay commuter train) so I'm looking for a bike that does not have wide handlebars and is not too heavy or long. I would love a vintage road bike but worry about the stability with the baby on back. I would like to find something (new or used) for <$500. It doesn't need to be fancy, I have my nicer road bike for that already. I was thinking a touring bike may fit the bill nicely but was wondering if anyone had any suggestions.

    I've had several since 1999 but have settled on my beloved 2001 Litespeed Tuscany and my latest, a 2014 Cannondale SuperSix EVO Hi-Mod Team bike

    Sounds to me like you're looking for a flat bar road bike. Something like this.
