I'm thinking of purchasing a bike which isn't a mountain bike which is quite an unexpectedy big step for me as I kind of have no idea what I'm looking at. I already own a Cove Stiffee setup with an agreesive set-up and an On-One Inbred set-up 1x9 (sometimes Sinlge Speed as it has horizontal dropouts) for XC.

All I know at this stage is that don't want anything too sporty but I also am not too keen on something overly classical. I like the look of the Cooper bikes but I wouldn't got any more classic than those I don't think.

I have devised a shortlist consisting of:-

Onza Uno
Identiti Persona
Swobo Sanchez
Surly Steamroller
Cotic Roadrat
Cooper Monza or Kyalami

Any advice on either the bikes mentioned or any other suggestions would be much appreciated.

    How far is your commute? What's your price range, what's wrong with your existing bikes for commuting on (or are they knobbly tired?)
