Hello fellow forum-ites, first post here.
I need an updated bike. My last bike is a Free Spirit I got 13 years ago as a 7th grader. For perspective purpose, now I TEACH 8th graders.
btw, I guess y'all can tell I am a newbie.
It will be used mostly as...
-commuter/alt. mode transportation bike for those short trips around town
-occassional trail/rides around local parks
Here are the features I wanted:
durable for casual riding. The bike will probably used as least once or twice per week during
price range about $500-$600
I did some research around some local bike shops and online, here are the few I see that fits the bill:
Scott Reflex 45 (test rode it and I like it quite a bit but at about $550-600 range, the price/feature ratio is a bit stiff)
Giant Sedona Lx
More suggestion welcome,
