My wife and I have been going to several biking stores and reading reviews, etc in an effort to learn about bikes suited to us.It seems like a "Comfort Bike" would be best but we are confused and could really use some good advice. The brand that looks good to us and is in the right price range is Giant. They have a couple of models that we like with the major difference being that one has "Front Suspension" and the other does not. They also have a different stem but we were told they could change that out on the less expensive model for around $20. My question is, Is the front suspension that important? We really do not envision going off-road at all and primarily want to get some mild exercise. The extra money and weight on the bike do not seem worth it since we will not be off-roading at all.
