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:
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.
They all look good. Bike one certainly shows very little wear of the (1) visible gear and on the back wheel from what I can see on the pictures. Bike two has suspension on the front fork and looks to have been better taken care of than bike one. I could not tell much from the pictures of bike three.
