[Please excluse the topic and Continue the thread on this LINK. I am now looking to purchase a bike in price range 800-1000, thank you!]
Greetings! this is my first post here, and I am happy to be a part of this forum now.
since my knee injury I have been resting from running for about a year on and off. So the best way to stay fit was to do alot of spinning and stationary cycling at gym.
However, now I see that it is time for me to own one, and can't wait to get on the roads and just go with it. I had a bike at my teenage years, but I have been away from the activity for 8-9 years.
so back to the point, I am looking to buy a used bike for the summer, both for transportation and exercise purpose. I want a bike that first of all is safe on roads, and also is suitable for some proper exercise, and as a bonus, if I can take it to trails it would be top notch. So What do you guys suggest me to go for? I don't want to spend more than $250 (canadian), as I am a student now and have lot of expenses, but feel free to advice me for bikes that go for more than the amount, as I will consider them for the future.
Thank you for reading!
