harpoonalt: Sorry, I don't know what made me think you were a lady. It was not intentional.

FWIW - Those bikes are all available in a male version, hehehe.

Could you buy the bike from them, but request to buy one from the box? I.e., take a pass on the free assembly? That'd be what I'd do if I were going to buy that bike.

Schwinn Coffee

This is not a TRUE vintage bike, but definitely a classic design. The more hardcore vintage guys/gals will turn up their noses, but I really like the classic designs, but without the classic hassles....

I just looked on Trek's site, I re-thought my recommendation from above. Those skinny-tired hybrids (Trek calls them "Fitness Bikes") still seem to put the rider in a forward lean.

This is the one...

Are you willing to give up comfort for speed? If so, cyclocross bikes are fine. They are basically road bikes that are more ruggedly built: stronger (heavier) frame, better brakes, and wider wheels...

You're right, it wasn't mentioned. It must have been a similar thread that had the $200 limit.

Didn't you say you had a hard $200 limit for the bike?

Only the beach cruisers and kids' bikes at REI are less than $200. Everything else seems to be $350+, which is out of the question even with...

The thing is, 'cross bikes aren't much different than road bikes. Heavier frame and braze-ons is about it.

I think you should get something truly different, like a hybrid or a proper urban bike....

I don't really see the benefit of a USB charged light. I prefer to invest the money in a stock of Sanyo Eneloop AAs and just switch them out when needed and be able to use them in other devices.

It can vary though. In my case, the shorter route is 26 miles one way, and the longer is 30+ miles and takes an hour longer. Either route...

Morning commute was great. It was 39F this morning when I left, so I wore cargo pants and a fleece sweatshirt instead of my usual shorts + T-shirt. No sweating!

I dunno SuperGreg, it seems like if you hit a pothole hard enough to throw you off of a road bike, there is probably some wheel damage somewhere. I'd get it checked if I were you.
