Hello all, this is my first post here, and I'm not sure if this is the right place for this post. I have recently got the cycling bug and want to get another bike (after mine was stolen). I do not want to get an ordinary off the shelf bike. My ideal bike would combine the speed of a race bike but at the same time being strong enough to be thrown around (little bunny hops, surviving pot holes etc). I was thinking of putting 3 gears on it because I live 8 miles for the city and there are many hills and I would like it as simple as possible and I know that there will be tradeoffs but I would prefer speed more then the strength. I don't know where to start though, what frame, wheels, gears etc should I look at? I am 6' and I have a budget of €600. Thanks!
