I'm shopping around for a new bike. I ride 4-10 miles a few times a week and an occasional ~50 mile road trip. I'm looking for recommendations on bikes similar to a SE Lager, Surly Steamroller, or Raleigh Rush Hour.
Ideally, I'd like the bike to have 3-gears, but it looks like the only way to have that is to custom build. Is this so?
I'm trying to stay within a $1200 or so budget, but this is secondary.
