NOTE: I'm a first time poster, but I've been on forums before (silverfishlongboarding.com) so I know someone will yell at me for not searching, however I feel my question is a bit to unique for the search function.
I'm a college student at Western Michigan University's college of aviation...that being said I do not have a very large budget. I'm trying to stick with a bike under $400.
I want a good all around bike, not strictly a road bike, yet fast on roads. At first glance, "hybrid" bikes such as these: http://bikes.jump-gate.com/bicycles_types/hybrids.html seem pretty cool, but expensive.
Firstly, would hybrids do the trick? Are they any ''cheap'' hybrids.
I'm thinking the answer to the above is no...
So what I'm leaning towards the most, is a Raleigh Mojave 4.0 with some ''slick'' tires on it.
