I'm new to biking. Started out as necessity rather than choice when I lost my license. However, in the past 3 weeks, I've ridden 10-15 miles per day 7 days a week. I've upgraded from a really crappy old mountain bike with broken shifters to a nice new bike.
I'm really enjoying the Denali I bought at walmart. I know people with more experience do not like this bike much but I just love it! I was proud of myself for breaking 20mph today. Not much to someone who's been riding a long time, but to me, it was huge.
I've gotten rid of the saddle soreness and my legs feel great! The difference between a mtn bike and a road bike is amazing to me! The road bike with the dropped handlebars took some getting used to at first. But now, I really cruise compared to the 8mph I did on that mtn bike.
Anyway, just wanted to say I'm really enjoying commuting. I'm losing weight and getting better at it. And I would highly recommend the GMC Denali bike at walmart to any beginner who wants a fast bike under 200 bucks.
