I have one. I like knowing my speed (really fun on the many downhills, somewhat depressing on the many uphills), and I like having a timer. My only regret now is that I didn't get the model that...

I have the Wald folding rear baskets. I love them. Perfect size for grocery bags, and my everyday shoulder bag for work fits nicely in there too. Add a couple bungies and you're all set.

Well, I made it home! Chickened out on the big hill, I was just too tired and knew I'd never make it. There's another hill right after that one, but I made that one ok.

I'm actually a lot less...

I have a Globe City 7, and mine was only $450. My LBS had a deal on some older ones so I spent only about $500 including the few accessories I needed (helmet, computer, folding baskets). See if...

I found mine to be a bit too loose for my comfort when I first put them on, but a couple of zip ties later and they're solid as a rock. If I recall correctly, I only needed one zip tie per basket,...

I have a Globe and love it. Keep in mind though, as someone else mentioned, you'll want to spend money on other things too, like a rack and helmet. I was lucky to find a Globe City 7 at my LBS,...

I have the folding Wald baskets. Much nicer looking than a milk crate, and they fold out of the way when I'm not using them. Perfect for grocery runs. Mine were free since they were a birthday...

I have nothing useful to add to this conversation except that I'm a (former) Bronco myself. :) I miss K-zoo. I don't envy you biking some of those hills though. Hope you don't live in the Valley!

Luckily the seat does seem to be getting better, or at least it wasn't bugging me nearly as much yesterday when I went out. It may just be me getting used to riding again.

I'm fully planning now...
