Hi. I am new to posting here, but have been lurking for 4-5 years.
Been riding junkers, and I know $400 bucks won't get me much, but it will be an upgrade from my craigslist and walmart bikes.
I am looking to order ASAP (my last bike died and I dont drive, need a way to get around ... I walk all the time but need something a little more efficient)
So Im assuming a hybrid? Just something to get around on thats night looking, and can do what I want it to do. No need for 2923402 speeds. Im in Florida and only use 3 or so... but if the bike has more I will make do.
I love simplistic and clean looking bikes...
The bike would be used for daily exercise route (5-10 miles depending on how I feel) and commuting. Maybe even some touring... I know thats a little far fetched... or is it?
Let me know what you all recommend. I am 5'8 and 155lbs... male. What size frame do I need. I know, I usually go by the 26 or 27 mens bikes, but I see that the true brands dont measure like that.
Thanks. And if someone could post links to online bike shops, I would appreciate that also... as I am having a hard time finding some to look through!
Thanks everyone! Hope to hear from some of you soon so that I can be riding even as early as next week!
