I've been in this forum for a while but didn't post much, recently I just move to Brooklyn, NY and looking for a bike to go to work at about 20 minus bus driving.
Here in NY is different than WA state where I used to live though. Here you have to ride a bike on street, not sidewalk. Obviously, there are a lots of people in the side walk here.
Therefore, I'm looking for a road bike for a long term using, with a range money about $300-$500 (just got work). I'm completely new with the pricing, but knowing a little bit about parts since I used to race (real race like tour de france) in my country 8 years ago. At that time, shimano mostly the best parts.
Anyway, any help for me buying a road bike here? Going around the shop here, the bikes with the money range I pay have only a few good parts, mostly sucky ones. I'm looking for a good used bike, on Ebay or something like that.
The bike model that has a good review or you have experienced with it is very appreciate. Since there are too many in Ebay that confused me. Thanks a lot.
