I'm new here. Hi guys! I'm Rebecca. I've been reading this board for about two weeks now. I'm one of those people who has a huffy. It's actually not that bad of a bike. My problem is that it's a mountain bike and I'm in the Chicago suburbs. I didn't know anything about bikes when I bought it. I've found out that it's more difficult to pedal a mountain bike on pavement. I ride about 10 miles or more a day. The longer/farther I ride this bike the worse I feel. It's a pain to ride it so I am looking for a new bike. I'm trying to do a little research before I get a new bike so I won't end up with the wrong type of bike. I mostly ride on paved bike paths and sidewalks. I sometimes ride on the gravel paths on forest preserves. I know that LBS are better than walmart or target, but I can't afford those prices and I don't want to risk getting ripped off on ebay or craig's list. I found a bike at Target that looks decent to me. I'm a total noob though so I was hoping you guys would help me out. The bike has good reviews on target.com. It also has good reviews on amazon.com. On amazon.com there are more detailed customer reviews under the men's version of the bike. Is this a decent starter bike for me? I don't have much money to spend and won't any time soon, but I love to ride.
