I have decided to take up biking as another way to get into shape. In the past, all I did was run on streets, asphalt trails, and mountain trails where I see bikers/cyclists past me by. What is a good starter bike that I can use for both street and mountain bikes?
Do you have a favorite bike that you started in? I don't want to spend too much $ right off the bat - maybe $200-300 range. Someone mentioned Giant to me the other day. I've seen ads for the following brands as well - Schwinn, Cannondale, and Trek. Any thoughts on which of these to avoid?
Thanks for the advice. I can't wait to get off my feet!
