I know nothing about bikes... but I need one and I don't want to go out and buy one without consulting the experts first. So I'll list my specifications and you all should try and help me with some specific brand and model names.
I'm a college student and will be commuting maybe 3 miles tops every day (over the course of the entire day)
I need something that can go over curbs and down steps (I weigh 210 lbs)
I'm also an outdoorsy person so I could see some trail riding in my future if I had the bike to do it.
Like I said I'm a college student so my budget is $200 tops
So some specific examples would be great (also I'm not opposed to buying a used bike if you think I could get a better bike for my money that way)
Thanks for the help!
