Hey everyone, I'm sure everyone has an opinion, but I'm looking for a bike to cycle to work and back in Manchester (more or less 20miles). I would like something lightweight and with thin wheels, but I also want to be able to use it back home in Wales, where even the roads are bumpy and not too nice, so front suspension would be good. I'm also thinking about maybe doing some cycling in France next summer so if there are any with pannier racks, then even better, however they're really not as important, because I may not even go to France. I don't really know much about bikes, and generally judge on looks... If anyone has any bikes they think are good (or great) then I would certainly appreciate the info! I have a max budget of £700 as I'm sure that I'll be able to get a bike good enough for less, but if there's a special bike for just a bit more, I don't really mind going over.
