Looking to start riding back and forth to work most days(13-15m one way), and in talking with people here and where I work who ride, I've decided Hybrid is the way to go. I'm going to stick with it unless I like...break my leg or something, but if I like it and wanna get more aggressive with it, I can adjust some things to make it so.
That being said, this is my first bike, and I'm hoping to get away with spending under 300 bucks. Unfortunately, I have NO idea what I'm looking for when it comes to bikes. I've been to a couple places around here, and everyone either has Hybrids that are like 4-5 hundred bucks, or no hybrids at all.
Just looking for a general direction to start looking for specific bikes, brands, whatever. I can search through Craigslist all day every day, but it doesn't mean I know what I'm looking for. Any help is appreciated. Thanks
