My mountain bike, which I’ve used as a commuter bike for years, has worn out its welcome. Looking for a replacement, something light, durable, fast, and fun. That removes a lot of so-called commuter/city bikes, as the components seem cheap, and the geometry uninspiring. I tested the Kona Dew and the Giant Seek 2 tonight. The Dew was terrible. Shifting the bike it seemed like something would break a few months down the road. The Seek was better, but hydraulic disk brakes are overkill, and the SRAM shifters were really weird/uncomfortable.
I had thought about trying the Specialized Sirrus, but now am leaning toward a cyclocross bike instead.
