    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.

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

    When the spirits are low, when the day appears dark, when work becomes monotonous, when hope hardly seems worth having, just mount a bicycle and go out for a spin down the road, without thought on anything but the ride you are taking. Arthur Conan Doyle
