    Most folks here would tell you to steer clear of Walmart/Target bikes.
    Fuji's have a reputation of having decent components and with proper
    care, lasting a long time.

    I never learned to ride a bike. It is my deepest shame.

    THat one looks like a pretty nice bike. How tall are you? THat bike is for someone ~5'0 - 5'4 or so... you have to be pretty short.

    Already has fenders and rear rack, I think it's a good deal.
    But only if it fits you, take it for a spin. By the way, I only
    recommended that FUJI(post #2) because it was closer to
    the price of the bike in your original post. There are plenty
    of good brands Trek, Cannondale, Giant, etc.

    Yeah, thanks for the responses guys. I figured I could spend a little more on a bike and not think about upgrading all the time. Haha, I am around 5"3 so its also harder to find small used bikes.
