n00b looking for entry level bike...
I just found these forums about 2 days ago and decided to join.
I've been wanting to get into biking for awhile now, and the last time I owned a bike was about 10 years ago when I was 12
Anyways, the past few weeks I've been searching craigslist and local bike shops for any deals on a hybrid.
I'm going to be using it as a commuter and want to do some local trails as well.
The first deal I found was at Sports Chalet, a Fuji Absolute 3.0 on sale for $349.99 plus an additional 25% off from a coupon that ends this Sunday.
Another local bike shop has a Trek FX 7.1 for $349.99 and a Trek FX 7.2 for $399.
One of my friend's really recommends the FX 7.2 but the price sounds really good on the Fuji.
What do you guys recommend for an entry level bike to get me up and riding again, should I just shell out the extra money for one of the Trek's or go with the Fuji, or find something on craigslist.
I'm a n00b to bike's and am starting to read more about them to be more knowledgeable!
Can't wait for your input.
