Welcome to your Monday on a Thursday post! Our Monday post was a little late because we celebrated our co-founder’s birthday way too hard and let’s face it, getting old sucks.
Today’s post is about helping out a fellow commuter choose a bike, here is the message that we received:
Hi i’m looking for a new bike and need a few recommendations.
I commute to work it’s only 2.5 miles but it includes a 7% grade hill. Down on the way to work and up the way home.
I’m a teacher and I often wear dressed to work. I need a bike that can handle the hill and is still a low enough crossbar that I can wear dresses. I currently have a 8 speed cruiser but it’s just too heavy for the uphill trip.
I don’t want to spend a lot but it seems women’s bikes are more expensive than men’s”
We posted the question on our Facebook page and we got one lonely response, I guess everyone is too busy commenting on Facebook posts regarding the President’s executive orders.
Anyhow, here is what I recommended: The KHS Ultrasport 1.0
The KHS Ultrasport comes in “Women’s colors”, low top tube, lots of gears and it is fairly reasonably priced. KHS is one of those brands that are underrated, we really like their bikes.
Let us know your suggestions, that is if you are not too busy commenting on posts about Donnie.
