Easy to ride/low maintenance bikes?
Just found this forum and think you experts can help me out. :)
First of all, I'm 60 and my wife is 55. Very good health and in good shape.
We've owned, very cheap, bikes for years but are now thinking of taking bikes on our rear carrier when we travel. We just took them to Key West and loved riding, instead of driving, around the island.
We've been looking at the Schwinn Contenental but aren't sure if we really need, or want, electric. But, price isn't a factor.
I don't like to tinker. I'd like maintenance free, if possible.
We've never been satisfied with the shift mechanisms of our cheap bikes but do want a few gears.
I love the idea of a driveshaft instead of a chain and would probably buy a Schwinn Contental if it came in non-electric.
And, I want light weight bikes with bars that will sit well on the two bike carrier that mounts on the receiver hitch of our car.
OK, really needing some advice on brands.
Thanks in advance,
