    Hey OTN, long time no post!

    My shitty $69 walmart bike sucks and it's time for an upgrade.

    I'm basically looking for something that's road oriented but can handle a little rough. Straight bars, with a few gears but I don't need that much range. What would be ideal is a bike with one ring up front, but those on a hybrid bike seem hard to come by.

    It's for fitness so generally weight doesn't matter too much. Must have trigger shifters, can't be doing with those gripshift things.

    I did take a look at some bikes with the shimano nexus, anyone had any experience with those? Would be nice to stay away from a derailleur.

    Thanks!

    That's a mountain bike.

    That's right, but I think it is a great deal! The fork is equipped with remote lockout so you can lock it. I suggested it because you will not get anyting better at this price, anyway good luck and I hope you will find what is best for you!

    Actually the more I look at it, that is a crazy good deal. Brand name parts top to bottom. Although is the price low because it's only available in 17"? Was it that price before when i had more options?

    Anyway, I went with a 2017 Mercier Galaxy Tour. :joshers:
