    Default Hydraulic disc brakes on a commuter for under $1k

    Great move by Evans Cycles and Sir Hoy, for under $1k you can get a commuter with disc brakes!

    Default Re: Hydraulic disc brakes on a commuter for under $1k

    There are other beasts availble with hydros and just under the 1k bar. I've been looking because my father-in-law wants to start cycling and 800 to 1k seems to be the sweet spot for getting real parts on a bike, but you still have to be careful. Like on this bike for instance: the 8 speed drivetrain. Not that it matters for many, but I worry about such an old system in the case of replacement or upgrade. I'm actually kind of digging the focus wasgo bikes. They come with fenders, racks, a generator hub and lights (!) and can be had with an internally geared hub and it looks like for less than 1k, but kind of rare to find them in the USA.
