I would love to buy a new bicycle but i'm not sure what i want. I'm currently riding a Schwinn Mesa that is probably 20 years old. I believe I'd like a bike with taller thinner tires. I've been looking at a Giant Via 1. I like the rack in front, the solid front forks, the fenders. I'm not sure if the three speeds will be enough for me as I am used to my mountain bike. The other bike I've looked at was the Diamondback Edgewood. I really like the Geometry, believe it will have enough gears. Not real big on the front suspension. Diamondback also has a Kalamar which would have less gears and I would want to change the seat and perhaps the Handle bar stem to that of the Edgewood. Any feed back would be greatly appreciated.
I've had several since 1999 but have settled on my beloved 2001 Litespeed Tuscany and my latest, a 2015 Cannondale SuperSix EVO carbon
Go to a REAL bike shop and tell them what kind of riding you plan on doing, how many miles per ride, your riding/fitness goals, and your budget. Test ride every bike they suggest and buy the one that you really like.
Be sure to post pics of the new bike.
