Bike for School Commute

Taking a steer from Morne, have reposted this outside of Chit Chat. Any guidance much appreciated...



HI Hubbers,


The 15 year old daughter of one of our helpers is currently walking to school, which is approximately 10km from their residence. They are seeking a bicycle to make this journey not so arduous. From what I can gather, a 'Chinese bike" was previously bought but it didn't last - so I guess what is needed is a pretty robust bike - one that can take the bumps, potholes and weather whilst not being a target of the criminal element.


Any advice on the best place to source such a beast? Given that the cost is probably coming out of my pocket, would appreciate that any suggestions take into account value for money!


I am in the Fourways/Magaliessig area.


Cheers, Lou



Maybe post this in one of the main forums like Commuting or build projects or tech questions/ buyers guide for more input? i really don't think a noble cause like this counts or belongs in offtopic chit chat
