Ok so I've been mountain biking on and off for around 10 years. A few years ago I bought a bike (my first road bike) similar to this one and it was an extremely capable sub 22lbs bike that I ended up doing several metric and one American century on. This bike is great to get started IMO, the bones are pretty good. You've got integrated shifting, 2 speed crank, a real Shimano group set, carbon fork, 25c tires (great overall size), and it's a medium (all they have left) so it will fit a lot of people all for around $300 shipped. Enjoy!

I was about to say that something from BikesDirect would be better and cheaper, but they don't have anything with decent components in this price range. So if this size fits you, not a bad starter bike.

Thank you for sharing. By the way, many American Express members may receive a statement credit of $35 for Nashbar purchases of $175 or more. This results in the bike being even less expensive.

I like Nashbar's return policy, which states "if for any reason you are not satisfied, simply return the item and we'll replace it or provide a refund... That's right – we're talking forever." There is a $7.99 fee for a return, but I think that's reasonable.

I am seeking a men's bicycle in a price range around $300 to $400. The bike will only be used for commuting a few miles a day, five days a week. It will only be used on paved city streets. I plan to wear work clothes (e.g., dress pants, dress shirt) while biking. I am not in a rush whatsoever and can wait months, if needed.

This SE Royale 16 Road Bike seems to fit the bill. Any thoughts?

At one point, because of the numerous potholes and cracks in the road, I was considering a hybrid bike because it would allow me to more easily ignore defects in the road. I am also considering folding bikes that are more portable.

Thank you,
Tofu Vic

Yep trust me, bikesdirect isn't even close on this deal. You just won't find this level of bike anywhere except maybe in the used market for this price.

Absolutely, I wish they still had small and larges in stock, but if you're in the 5' 6" to 5"11" range I'd say this bike could easily work very well for you. Oh you might want to add a mud guard that mounts on the rear seat to keep your backside clean, roll your right pant leg up with a velcro strap to keep lube off your pants.

I'm considering the same. Are you not concerned about sweat?

I am. I get hot super easily, too, so that's a concern. If I get a bike, I would be doing bike-to-train for my commute, as opposed to drive-to-train.

At one point, I had considered getting a motorcycle so I can just do that instead of bothering with the train at all.

I hear that. Sweat is the only thing stopping me right now from getting this bike. I'm on the fence here

If your masculinity can stand it, you should consider a scooter. I have been commuting via a Genuine Buddy 125 and more recently a Vespa GTS 300 and its usually the best part of my day.
