Hello all First time poster who is looking for a little advice on a new commuter bike. I'm doing a little research but naturally, most websites are trying to sell you stuff so everything they cover is just 'fantastic', from the lowest 150 quid bike through to the £1000+ ranges. This means that it's proving a little hard to judge what is a reasonable purchase. I have about £600 to spend but I'm not looking for an off road machine. It's purely a commuter bike. I'm in my 40's and although I'm not a road snail, I'm not as nippy as I once was. My main problem is that I have a back injury which means that drop bars are out of the question (old git that I am). My current steed was purchased in the mid 90's (Renyolds 531 Frame, Deore LX gears) and almost everything has been replaced except the frame, the crank and the front mech. It has worked brilliantly for 15 years but is starting to show its age now. The trouble is that because the machine has worked so well for such a long time, I've lost touch with what is hot and what is not (hence this post I guess). Any help or advice would be much appreciated.
