Im looking for some advise on bikes, this will be my first time buying one and I look forward to replace my car for a bike. My plan is that I would be commuting 2.5 miles to work/home and 2 miles to the nearest trolley station to commute to school.
I went to a local bike shop and I got offered a used road bike for 250dlls; the guy told me that it was the bike I was looking for. I figured that I could spend that amount of money in a new one (and probably better). Well, I did a review on a couple of bikes and found these two that are in my price range and seem good by the specs. Both are 250dlls.
Option A.Nashbar Flat Bar Road Bike
Option B. 2013 Dawes Eclipse 1.0
Right now, I like Option A the best.
Please let me know what you experienced guys think. Any advise is highly appreciated.
