I am extremely excited to start cycling! I am, however, very new. I haven't ridden a bike in years. I do love taking spin classes at my local gym. I need your expertise on the particular bicycle I seen in my local bicycle shop. My husband and I are thinking of buying this brand:
Del Sol LXi 6.1 for $375 on sale on black Friday. Before we make that decision I need your expert opinions.
A little background info first. I am female, 31 years old. Overweight but I love the gym and am working on that. My hubby is also slightly overweight. Neither one of us have rode a bike since we were teenagers so we have a lot to learn and are excited to embark on a new journey. We will want to ride mainly on roads but some on gravel and hills, etc. I understand this is a hybrid bike. We do get to test it Friday.
On a side note, I had no idea bikes could be so expensive!!! I do not want to purchase a bike from XMart because I am serious about starting to ride. I also don't want to shell out a thousand dollars for one bike. At least, not yet.
Please, if any of you have any advice on whether or not I should purchase the Del Sol please respond. Thank you :-)
