I am in Need of Some Opinions
I'm new to this forum, though for the past few months I have browsed through in search of solutions and tips to problems I have had with my very problematic ride, and after bending my bike fork enough to make it strike the pedal every time I turn, I realized it's time to move on from what Walmart has to offer.
Soooo I have been looking on craigslist and the ksl classifieds (basically a local craigslist) for a new ride.
I rarely actually go mountain biking, usually i ride around ten miles a day on the road. I'm on a slope so things usually end up being up or down for me regarding going to a friend's house, my girlfriend's house, or school, which is all I do. I pump up then cruise down from any destination. I am a beginner and need some advice on choosing a decent bike. Here is what I'm looking at right now:
The fit is perfect considering my short height of just 5'7''. Cheap too, I convinced the seller to drop it to $200.00
Another bike I saw that seems great is this:
An older and slightly different model, but much cheaper. My favorite part
And maybe this:
An ideal bike for me, being sixteen and needing transportation capable of climbing yet being quick and relatively light, is a good hybrid, but those are the best choice for my budget as far as I have seen.
Thank you for your time.
