Looking for recommendations on a casual bike to ride around town:
A little about me:
-used to be a good athlete, played football, baseball and tennis growing up and among other things used to do a decent amount of mountain biking and had a $700 mountain bike (at the time) like 20 years ago. Haven't been on a bike since.
-Nowadays, I just throw the weights around and mostly sit at the computer...and yeah I've gotten kinda fat. Looking to lose a little weight and Casual biking with the woman is on the list.
What I'm looking for:
- Decent, very comfortable bike to ride around the streets where I live and maybe some mild off-roading. Mostly will be casually cruising but occasionally I can see my competitve spirit kicking in and want to turn it up a notch.
- Don't want to spend a lot of money...I do want quality but want bang for the buck...looking for something under $500.
Here is one I was considering:
