I am a woman of mature years considering taking up bicycling. I am considering the purchase (for short money) of a decent 1995 Cannondale T700. Eventually, should I enjoy this as much as anticipated, I will purchase a better bicycle more suited to my riding preferences.
For right now, I am looking for more of a touring style vs. a racing or road style.
Thoughts? Things to look for or avoid? Naturally, my local bike shop will service the machine, but from what I have researched and read, if the bike is the appropriate size and in reasonable condition, this may be a good entry level machine for me.
