Suggestions for lightweight bikes? [Complete newbie here]
I am interested in buying a folding bike, I think the biggest issue for me would be weight and price.
The most I'm willing to spend is $200, maybe $250.
I was wondering what you guys would suggest.
So far, I'm considering the Kent Ultralite
or the Kent Superlite
But I worry about the reviews of unsatisfied customers
That, and people on this forum
don't seem very happy with Kents either.
I'm not looking for anything too special, just something inexpensive to get me from Point A to Point B without anything horrible happening to me. o.0
If it matters, I'm about 4'11" and maybe 90 pounds?
(Wow, that looks pretty bad now that I look at it typed out. But I assure you, I'm stronger than I sound.)
I plan on riding around town to my friends' houses, the movies, the park; things like that. Maybe even to school once it starts up again.
I guess I should also add that I'm new to bicycling in general.
Honestly, as of this moment I don't even know how to ride a bike, but my friends are going to teach me (Oh yeah, definitely some fun teenage summer memories coming up for me.)
Thanks in advance, and I look forward to being an active member in this forum!
