Well, I made a thread on the living car free forum as far as what to get, What kind of bike to get? , right now i'm wondering which would be best, of what i've seen on CL. I checked the local bike shop, and their for sale bikes were too large (i'm about 5'6", give or take a couple, and these bikes' seats were above my waist!) and a bit too pricey.
B 2 or 3 of: http://kansascity.craigslist.org/bik/272537817.html (Not a big fan of red)
C: http://kansascity.craigslist.org/bik/275484132.html one of these
D: http://kansascity.craigslist.org/bik/275489398.html the second one of these
Or something else entirely? I can't really afford more than a hundred dollars or so.
Also, a few noob questions:
1: What should I look for in a helmet?
2: What should I look for in a first aid kit?
3: What should I look for in a light?
4: Are there any other safety things I should look into?
5: What should I look for in a lock? (Kinda have the basic idea here, would like more opinions though)
6: Does handle bar type matter? I usually have problems with vertical bars, but normal horizontal ones are fine
7: Any other important things I should know?
Thanks a lot to anyone that takes the time to answer this.
