I am looking for a replacement bike for my wife. She's riding chain-store $150 Schwinn MTB. Nothing special. Heavy, useless front suspension, fatter tires than needed. We do not have a lot of money to spend so I am looking at bikes that cost $300 or less. Performance Bike has Fuji Crosstown 4.0for $279 but they do not offer shipping (local pickup only). I also found Diamondback Vital One LXon Amazon for $250 shipped. Is it a decent bike?
If not this one, what other models would you recommend? I am looking for a hybrid bike without front suspension and only 7 speed (no front gears). This is strictly for family riding to park on paved roads. No mountain biking or fast riding as we are going to be hauling kids with us.
