    Cheap Commuter Help

    So I'm thinking about a pretty cheap- but nice, commuter bike.... I was searching around and found these. Anyone have any experience with either of them??

    Any suggestions are MORE than welcome also
    Thanks

    Those are both decent whips. I might be a little more inclined to go with the SE, since you can have two hand brakes instead of one. The SE also looks like it has eyelets for fenders. If you don't have to worry about hills in your area though then a coaster brake should be just fine. Remember though that something with more than one gear will allow you to go faster and/or shift down if you have to fight a headwind. Other wise, they're both seemingly light and relatively inexpensive bikes.

    If you go for the coaster brake bike, add a front handbrake. Rear wheel braking is totally inadequate for emergency stopping, not to mention that you'll be w/o brakes if the chain should break or come off.

    The key to solving any problem is to understand and address the underlying cause.

    +1 SE bikes. The Lager's pretty decent, do not buy the Draft.
    I'm gravity challenged, adrenaline deficient, and looking for that endorphine high. Shout out, I'll move out of the way. :-)
