Had my bike stolen yesterday. Even though it was double locked and locked to a metal fence Anyway that's in the past. What I want now is to know some makes of bike to look at when considering my new bike purchase, which will be sometime next week as I need a bike to get to college. My old bike was a Ridgeback Velocity which I bought 5 years ago. I'm not too knowledgeable about bikes so don't know what to look for. When I bought my Ridgeback I had some friends who advised me, who I've now lost contact with. I know I'd like my new one to be a similar hybrid/town bike. I'm not too keen on mountain bikes as I won't be doing any off-roading and I think they're slower for road use because of the heavy frames and tyres. My budget is around £500 with a sizeable proportion going on the locks this time, even though it seems to make no difference to the committed bike thief. Anyway, any ideas????
