Introductions - Hello From Louisville, KY
Bikeforums.net is a forum about nothing but bikes. Our community can help you find information about hard-to-find and localized information like bicycle tours, specialties like where in your area to have your recumbent bike serviced, or what are the best bicycle tires and seats for the activities you use your bike for.
I am 24 years old, married, and looking for a bike to comute to and from work. I cycled a lot in Jr High and High School as part of cross training for Track and Field. When I left for college I had to leave my bike behind because the campus had no where to store it, and they wheren't allowed inside the dorms. Now I am married and begining my career I am looking to geting back on the bike for both personal health and freeing up some extra cash. I have been looking for an active online cycling comunity to try and help answer many of the questions I have about cycling.
Welcome Alfred to BikeForums.
I see you've already found the Commuting forum. Lots of great info there.
For $200 you won't get much of a bike. Save up a little more (maybe $500+) and you'll get a much better, more reliable bike.
You'll also need lights, panniers to carry your stuff, and the list goes on and on. :)
I understand I am asking a lot from my small budget but with everything going on right now there is no way I would be able to spend $500. That extra $300 buys a lot of groceries. I figure the money I save by riding will help offset accessories and repairs. I hoping to get something with potential for my little $200.
