I recently lost my license due to a health issue and have to walk to work. I would rather bike to work, but I don't know which bikes to look at; Will you help me /n?
I live in the uppernorthwest of ohio, so snow might be an issue at points...mostly I am looking for something study and solid. Not some cheap gear shifting fuckup. I know I want disc brakes, but I don't know much else about bikes. Money isn't an issue, I mean as long as its under something like $550 ish.
THanks
Thanks

I was looking at the Trek Allant 7.2

Anyone have thoughts on that?

You either get something sturdy, solid, and with disc brakes or something under $550. Go on craigslist or something and just get an older MTB.

I could spend more if it is at all worth the extra couple hundred. I just don't know what to look for in a bike that will primarily be used to bike to work and back.

How long is your commute?
What kind of terrain will you be riding on?
Are there any hills where you live?
Why do you want disc brakes if you don't know about bicycles?

commute is only 20min
mostly roads and sidewalks
some hills
I want disc brakes because I prefer to have proper braking than those shoes that get worn out after 2 months.

Traditional brakes are good enough, lasts more than two months and are cheap as fuck. If you don't know about bikes, don't assume you really need X. For commuting you need reliable and cheap stuff.

what is the disadvantage of disc brakes?
Soft shoe brakes are the worst.

I dunno, do you want drop bars or flat bars? I put a few suggestions there, but I would avoid bikes with suspension.

I mean, I guess a DUI is sorta a "health issue", right?

Have you ever actually been on a bike? Good rim brake pads will last a long time. The pads on my bike have ~850 miles on them (in a mountainous area, not flatlandia) and I'm thinking that maaaybe I'll swap them out before I get to 1k miles.

Unless you're riding in dirt, suspension is just extra weight to lug around. It makes your pedaling less efficient, too (particularly cheapo rear suspension).

All jokes aside, something like a Specialized Cirrus may meet your needs. Flat bar, disc brakes, retails for $550. https://www.specialized.com/us/en/men/bikes/fitness/fitness/sirrus-disc/118422

I took the higher-end version of this bike across Japan. A little heavy, but solid and well made.

Flat bar road bike sounds like what you're after

>Why avoid suspension?
At $500, you're going to be getting a heavy and shit suspension, it'll just be dead weight for the kind of riding you'll be doing, if you want more comfort, go for wider tyres

Suspension is worse than useless under about 1500 dollars or so.

Disc brakes are frequently more trouble than they're worth at that price range.

Get whatever entry level shit heap hybrids they have at your price point. As a general rule, the more it's like a 90's mountain bike, the better.

As a general rule, avoid shit that they actually call flat bar road, but at your price range it doesn't matter, as its' all the same entry level garbage.

Alant 7.2 is acceptable. You'll pay extra for the brand name but it's in the right neighborhood.
