I went to an LBS the other day and asked the guy for advice. I told him that I wanted a bike used only for city riding, for 10-20+ mile trips. Not for excercise, racing, or offroading.
I said I wanted to know what the decent bikes would start at.
He showed me Raleighs. They all had front fork and seat suspension. They were $300.
It seems like I've seen advice on here about staying away from suspension, and I haven't seen anyone recommending a Raleigh.
So was this guy trying to sell me crap, or was he on the level?
I'm going to a different LBS for another opinion, but I'd just like to know what you guys think.
