so this coming fall im going to be moving away for college and as any college student i need myself a bike. But of course like most college students i am completely broke. So i read around and for my budget which is 200, i should be looking for a used bike if i want anything that wont break in a month.
So after tons of searching i have a couple options for bikes. i was wondering if anyone could give me some input on which bike is even worth considering. Im also completely new to bikes so i know next to nothing about them.
P.s im 5'8.
Thanks in advance !
