I haven't ridden a bike since I was probably 12.
For the physical, social, financial and of course enviromental reasons we all know, I am looking to buy a bike. Eventually I want to work up to commuting but to start with just for getting from point A to point B, errands, and just for the joy of it. All of those things better suited to 2 wheels than a big ol' Jeep.
What I don't know is well, anything beyond that. What kind of bike do I want? What price range am I looking at? I think I would prefer to start off with a used bike and move on up from there evnetually, just because as I said, it's been a lot of years and who knows, maybe I lack natural balance
Everything seems so much more technical than I expected! Sizes and shapes and inches and weights and lions and ti...err...ok nevermind. *chuckles* And how does size come into all this? I'm Female, 5'8" and heavy, does that make a difference? Any info would be helpful folks. Thanks.
