Not sure if this is the spot for this, but I've tried visiting a few bike shops and no one is particularly helpful. I'm new to the sport. I always loved biking, but have never really gotten very involved and have lived abroad in a city where bicycling is near impossible (Delhi, India). I've just moved to what seems a great biking city: D.C. I'd like a bike that's primarily for getting from point A to point B, mainly on flat roads, perhaps a few slight uphills, but nothing major. I'd like my bike to be my primary mode of transportation. I don't want to add another car to our already clogged roads. I grew up with beach cruisers and they seem simple and comfortable, but I'm having trouble finding any in D.C. Are there any suggestions you all have for a good type of bike for me? I really appreciate it!! I've been lurking around the site and hope to get to know bikes better. Thanks!!
