Good thread. I agree that it’s not necessary to spend $5K for a good bike. Of the brands/bikes mentioned thus far, I’d probably steer toward one of the Cannondale Habits (or Bad Habits). Does Cannondale make the best bikes on the market? Perhaps not, but I think they make very respectable bikes that represent a really solid value for the price point. My current go-to bike is a fully rigid Cannondale Trail SL 29er singlespeed. Love it. BTW, REI currently has a couple models of the 2016 Cannondale Habit on sale. The link goes to the Habit Alloy 5 (for just $1650) but there’s at least one other Habit on sale too. For that price, you can buy two. 😉
