I am looking to buy a ladies hybrid in the region of £300 - £400. I want the sit up and beg type and am interested in the Pendleton Somerby. Does anyone have any thoughts about this (I am worried I am being seduced by name and pretty colours!) I am wondering whether I should be looking for something that remains light but with more gears. I will be riding my 3 sons to school (with one of them on a tag-a-long) but also will be riding on cycle paths at weekends! Any suggestions welcome! Thank you.
