How many miles and what elevation? I'm more inclined to think you're correct rather than your dad. As long as you aren't buying a total scrap heap almost anything would work for an18 minute commute

If it's only 20 minutes, your bike won't matter tbh. Just take it slow on the climbs and you'll get there. Cheap bikes are perfectly fine

I just took my bike on a joyride from clinton hill, brooklyn to brighton beach the other day, taking coney island ave the whole way down. it was far more stressful than anything i remember about commuting and joyriding in washington, d.c. Kind of a bummer, but I'll probably do it again if I'm honest.

Finally took a "glamour" shot of my bar/grocery/commuter bike. Yes bela I know I should get fenders.
