    Really Cheap Bikes on CL: Help me decide which one

    I live in Brooklyn. I've had 2 bikes get stolen. I am over fancy bikes. I was going to get a Surly, but I said "**** it" bc it will probably get stolen. I found 2 cheap bikes on CL and I am not sure which one is better:

    The Diamondback would definately be the better bike. Even though it is an older bike, it at least comes in frame sizes, but the Mongoose is one size fits all. The components on the Diamondback are much better than the low end Shimano equipment on the Mongoose.

    Some questions:
    What is your definition of fancy bikes? Is the Diamondback the right size for you? What type of riding do you do?
