hi everyone, am a newbie looking for advice on new hybrid. i wish to get a (more) decent hybrid, and have seen good deals on a ridgeback velocity (2007) for 200 pound, from 300, and a dawes discovery 501 (2007)for 300 pound, was 450. i have found a few reviews for the ridgeback, and it sounds good, and i like the look of it. but have found no reviews of the dawes. wondering if there is anyone with experience of these bikes that could tell me if the dawes is worth the extra hundred. I will be riding the bike to work everyday, which is 6-8 miles either way, almost all on road (but many potholes in my area) would be very thankfull for any advice..
