I have been out of biking for 15 years but am preparing to come back. I'll commute to work about five miles one way plus some other recreational riding -- once I get a new bike, that is.
I just test rode a KHS Brentwood which felt great but I'm scared by the price (only $229). The shop owner told me they were a quality bike, big in Europe but didn't advertise here in the US which helped keep the price low. My recent research has conditioned me to think I have to spend a minimum of $500 (or more) to get a decent bike but this thing just felt really good.
Does anyone know anything about them or have any experience? Any feedback appreciated.
