I'm pondering a new bike (ladies style). I want to test ride the Globe Daily 8spd, Electra Amsterdam 8spd, and the Pashley Sovereign Princess 5spd. I like the more upright casual riding type bike. I'm 50 and haven't ridden a bike in at least 10 yrs, but will be moving to a bike friendly community within the next yr (hopefully!). I want something that will get me around town on bike trails, etc. I have a couple of vintage bikes that are just for fun, but wanted something newer as well.
If you ride any of these, your feedback would be greatly appreciated. Especially on how well they hold up.
