Hello everybody; I need some good advices since I do not know much about bikes. I'm in the market for a new commute/hybrid bicycle. I am going to use the bike for daily commuting, about 10 miles of urban riding combined with road riding. Right now I own a 26” hybrid and it works ok in city and the hills, but derailleur gears are not good when I unexpected need to stop and start again in the traffic; and when driving on the road the bike is way too slow. I am thinking to spend about $1k, and I want to have hydraulic disc brakes and Alfine 8-speed internal hub or better. There are several good bikes with hydraulic disk brakes or with internal hub for about that price, but not many have both of them at the same time. I have been thinking about the Giant Seek 1 and it looks to be a good bike, but I am not sure if it is fast as I want it to be. Do you have any suggestions? Thanks in advance.
