The Magic Number for Commuter Bikes

The word out there today is the perfect price point for commuter bikes is around $500.

What do you think? Is that about the price you’d pay for a commuter bike?

To me, anything lower than $350 would make me second guess about the quality of the bike…unless its a used bike that was $1000 back in its prime.
