I'm looking into getting a good little urban bike or cruiser bike. Something to ride around town casually, commute a bit, leisure stuff. I want something that has 7 or 8 gears (internal hub or external) and is comfy to ride, looks cool and isn't too expensive. I'll buy used if anyone out there has something to sell, but i'm more thinking of buying new for $500-$700 max.
So far I've checked out the Electra Townie, and the Brodie Section 8. anyone have any reviews on either or any other bikes to suggest?
