    The Edgewood is a great bike for the type of riding you described. I started out on an Edgewood and it served me well until I started long distance riding.
    The tires that come on it are a bit general purpose, a mix if of road and street. If you get the bike and still ride on paved trails maybe you'll want to change the tires to a smoother tread. I switched the 45's that came on the bike to 35's and eventually went to Continental Gatorskins 28's.
    Over all I think you'll be satisfied with the Edgewood. It is a gateway drug to the N+1 paradox that effects all cyclists.

    I saw prices all over the board from $450 to $270, but nothing as low as $200. If it fits your needs, and the gearing is right, It looks like a very good deal.
