    Nub from Illinois

    Hello everyone, I hope my time here will be well spent in looking for information on what bike to get. I spent a lot of time on paintball and realized it was only taking money from me, a bike will get me around and I won't have to pay for gas when just doing stuff in town. So I am quitting paintball and saving up some money for a bike.
    I have used cheap walmart bikes before that has ended in the handle bars popping off while riding and look to buy something that will last me more then six months.
    I don't have a bike right now I just borrow my siblings and with all the riding around town that I do; I won't be able to borrow my older siblings bikes when they move out. I am newb, looking to get a decent bike is all, I don't really know any of the terms for bike parts except, chain, handle bar, seat, tires, inner-tube, spokes, fork. That's about all I can say.

    Hello Wolf, good luck with your search for a bike...if you are at all handy with fixing things there's always garage sales, thrift shops, and Craigslist...
