Recomend me a new utility bike/frame $1-2000 range
Hi all! I've been getting really sick of riding in the rain without fenders lately, and as my bike can not accommodate them, it may be time for a new one
I have been out of the bike market for the last four years or so, so any recommendations y'all can give would be greatly appreciated!
Here's what I'm looking for:
Something to run errands, including groceries in the 0-5 mile range. Also, just for general all purpose travel needs, winter and summer. It should be quick, though I am not opposed to a slightly more relaxed geometry. It needs to be completely utilitarian and able to last for at least a decade. I'm willing to spend no less than 1000, and not much more than 2000. And there have to be attachment points for any conceivable fender and or rack.
Also, I'm partial to a classic narrow tubed frame
though that's not a deal killer.
Here is one I found in my initial research- minus the bar end shifters:
Any other brands I would be wise to look at?
