My older sister (66) bikes a little bit. The problem is that her driveway is about half a mile of somewhat hilly, potholed dirt road. This is her bike,
which, for her at least, doesn't work well on that driveway.
So, to ride, she has to load the bike onto her car, which she is less likely to do.
I thought perhaps I'd buy her a used mountain bike, fix it up for her, and surprise her with it, so she could ride right from her house. Good idea?
I'm a roadie and know nothing about mountain bikes. Any suggestions on what to look for? I'm guessing that fit isn't as critical as with a road bike, and I'll look for something that has a range of saddle heights that includes the height of her current saddle.
