My B-I-L (Brutha-In-Law) has started thinking about proclaiming his independence from car-commuting and purchasing something with 2 wheels that he can pedal. Living in Arizona, good biking weather is kind-of always, and his commute isn’t terribly long or hilly. Recently he mentioned to me that he was looking at “fixie” bikes. I tend to think that the coaster hub is one of the better improvements on the basic concept of the bicycle, and told him so, but that’s just me. I realize some of this blog’s readership is somewhat to fairly knowledgeable about bikes; what say you all? What’s a good “commuter” bike, on a budget of ~$300?
