I live in West London, and commute into the St. Paul's area every day, which is a distance (I think) of a little more than ten miles. The route is reasonably flat. The roads are usually very busy, and occasionally quite frightening. I know that the bikes that I've linked to are probably over-specified for what I need them for, but I like the look of them. So, are there any alternatives that look similar, for around the same price? Also, where in London can I get the best service, and/or the best price for a bike like this? Any advice and suggestions would be much appreciated.
Curious George: Buying A Bike I'm looking to buy a bike for my daily commute. So far, from looking around, I'm tempted by this one, really tempted by this one, and if pushed would seriously consider this one, although it would probably cause me some serious buyer's remorse. Any monkeys out there have any advice on what to buy, or where (in London) is the best place to do the buying?
