Any help appreciated.
The easiest place to start is at one of our many local bike shops, Century (my preference), Eddy's, Ohio Bicycle Coop, etc. See what they have, take some test rides, ask questions to your heart's content, report back here with any questions you can't get answered to your satisfaction.
"Let us hope our weapons are never needed --but do not forget what the common people knew when they demanded the Bill of Rights: An armed citizenry is the first defense, the best defense, and the final defense against tyranny. If guns are outlawed, only the government will have guns. Only the police, the secret police, the military, the hired servants of our rulers. Only the government -- and a few outlaws. I intend to be among the outlaws" - Edward Abbey
