...I rode around on my old BMX when I was a teenager. I'm going to be moving back into a larger city to be closer to work, but want to use a bike to commute. I know that more gears would probably make the pedal work easier (there are some hills, but I don't think they'll be much of a problem) but I want something simple, something that won't require a lot of upkeep.
I've looked through many of the different threads here about various bikes but wanted some feedback from you guys. I am looking to keep this bike fairly inexpensive (BD?) because I'll probably be buying another bike for longer rides. I'll be doing groceries for myself, and other errands on it, so a rack is a possibility.
Thoughts about what might fit the bill? Reccomendations? I was thinking a Kilo or MB Messenger, maybe something from Windsor. I hear at that price level, most of those bikes are the same and you get what you pay for.
