At the moment, I'm looking at the lower end Trek FX, Scott Sub, and the Fisher Monona (although I'm not sure the Monona comes in my size--my road bike is 61cm Trek Madone 5.2). I'm looking for something that I can ride to work carrying my trombone (professional musician...), run to the supermarket, ride with the family, attach the kids' tag-along and/or Burley, etc. Essentially, I'm tired of buying gas and want to get out of the car altogether! I want a decent ride without spending a whole lot in case of wreck/theft/whatever. I love my road bike, but throwing my horn on my back or attaching a Burley to my Madone aren't options for me. I am open to further suggestions as well. I am new to the commuting thing, so fire away. Thanks very much.
