Looking to spend <$500, nothing too tempting for thieves
My good old (stolen) Fuji Thrill was $169 out the door at Performance brick and mortar at the turn of the century. I put at least 40k miles on that bike. Man I miss that bike.
Right now I am browsing BikesDirect and considering this
Road Bikes Cafe Latte smooth riding Hybrid bikes roadbike bicycle road bicycle on sale at a discount road bike flat bar road bike
This should serve my needs just fine.
Any other alternative suggestions appreciated
Must have freehub, because old freewheel style is a ticking timebomb, they always fail quickly in my experience.
