I know zero about biking, expect how to pedal I'm looking to buy a new bike, and wonder if you can offer some tips on the type I should be looking for?
I've narrowed my choice to a Trek for the moment, due to availability here and from recommendations. However, I'm really confused on which type of bike I want/need.
Here's my planned usage:
- short trips around cycle paths in city
- longer day rides on roads
- ability to have panniers on bike and a baby seat - will be carrying a small child sometime.
- don't really like the MTB style of sitting - would prefer to be more upright.
I have around 500 euros to spend.
So... when I look on the Trek wesbite, which types and models should I first look at (and maybe a note as to why?)
Thanks for the help - hopefully I'll be able to learn a thing or two
