The handlebars made my hands numb, the seat hurt my ass, and the rear wheel had at least 6 broken spokes. But it was mine.

It was, apparently, a 2011 Opus Urbano with a rigid fork. I can't believe I had that bike for 7 years already!

Oh well, this is what happens when you park on the street downtown. I had thought of replacing or upgrading the bike this year, now I guess I have to.

Any recommendations for a simple commuter bike that goes fast but isn’t complicated? Steel or aluminim is fine. Budget is limited, out of common sense as much as anything else.
