I know they're cheap....and probably big P.O.S.'s, but I have a friend that REALLY wants a bike, and happens to be REALLY broke, too. I figure a POS is better than nothing, at this point. She wants it for in-town, very small mileage riding, anyway, so until she knows if she likes biking, would this be a horrible idea?
Also, she's about 5'5" (maybe a bit shorter) and I'm wondering what the difference would be between a boys' 24" and a mens' 26" frame? (Other than height, LOL ;
One of the Marts has a bike for $55 right now. That's the one she's considering.
Thoughts, protests, encouragement, and helpful hints are all welcome!
