Im looking to buy a new bike in the next few weeks. My budget is very limited as I am currently laid off from work. Im looking to spend no more than $250 in total. If theres something light years better for another few bucks I would spring for it, but I would like to stay extremely close to this price point.
Ive been monitoring my local craigs list and everytime a bike of interest appears its sold in under 1 hour...
A little about me:
Im 5'10.5" on the dot, weigh in roughly 220 Lbs although I might be a little heavier right now...
I currently own a "Jeep Wrangler SE" mountain bike. It is to uncomfortable to ride anything much more than a mile or two.
I am looking for a comfort type bike or hybrid, where it takes the weight off my hands. Something with an ample seat. My Uncle just bought a Trek Pure- its nice but far out of my budget.
Here are two bikes Im considering- in order of preference:
I personally like the K2 the best. The frame designs and heights are similar to the Trek Pure. The handlebars are positioned in a similar fashion as well.
The Gazelle bike is said to be built in the same factory as the Treks and Cannondales. This would lend to quality- although the components used may not be the best.
Or if you have any suggestions.
And for the fun of it... heres my Jeep bike...
