The GT Traffic 1.0 is an aluminum 8-speed with disc brakes that retails for $660.
In a recent review, Adam Newman of the Bicycle Times sums up Traffic 1.0:
The Traffic is a solid platform for getting where you need to go and fun enough to take you a little bit beyond. While I will admit to being spoiled by some of the high-end bicycles we get to demo, I was impressed with the value of the build. Included are Shimano hydraulic disc brakes, full coverage fenders and even a bell. Add some lights and a lock and you’re off.
I would add that the Traffic 1.0 is built for wide tires. It comes with 700 x 40c Schwalbe Roadcruiser tires that feature reflective sidewalls and puncture resistance. These are quality tires -- I think they go for about $25 apiece -- and they should offer a cushy, flat-free ride and last for a long time.
