I've finally scored the gig I want which can get me on my bike five days a week, and get me a new bike to boot.
I'll be riding from Marrickville to Rhodes, so any advice on a commute will be very welcome. Have spotted nothing on bikely.com, but there's got to be a way there via a link-up between the Cooks river track and Homebush Bay. I'm open to suggestions there though.
But I reckon I'll have a grand to spend on a new bike, so I thought I'd take this to you people, the socially-networked, fearless road warriors of Sydney.
A grand can get alot of bike, even with the mooted price hikes, but I want find the BEST deal there is for a commuting bike, which will be used on road and path, in rain or shine. I want a rack and mudguards as part of the deal. Flat handlebars are my preference, with a triple, though I am happy with a double chain ring.
What do you reckon? Fire away with what you think is the best deal for a grand ...
