Well the title says it all. I have did some search for this subject but decided to post my question for the best fit. Please do not flame me for being cheap. Or tell me to get a used one. I have my needs and reasons.
I have been going to Target and Wal*Mart and looked at their bikes. What my need is very simple. A bike that can be used a few times a year. Maybe go on a nearby bike trail. As an alternative for car for 1-2 mile trips, etc.
I used to ride a $120 bike bought in Costco duing college, about 8 years ago before it got stolen. It serves me well and I figure a similar one would go for sub-$100 these days. Given that back-to-school days are around the corner. I might have a better selection.
I am 5'10" but I am thinking of getting a 24" bike. As I think it would be smaller and lighter than a 26". And had a better chance to fit in a small car's trunk if I had its front wheel taken off. I've seen a Target one (PK7) going for $99. But I also saw the Wal*Mart's Next Power. Which seems to very much the same. And have anyone got any comment with this Honda?
I'm really not sure if I need the rear suspension thing since it seems to be heavier than those without. But a lot of cheap bikes these days are either dual suspension or no suspension. I would prefer one with suspension. Quick release front wheel is usually not available for sub-$100 nor 24" wheels.
Please do not suggest me to buy a used one.
