Help me...

Hi all....

I have not been on a bike for a long time... I rode my freinds & remembered how much fun it is...

I am think of getting a Fuji, Discovery 1, it has a 17in frame i believe.

Does anyone know much about this bike?

Thanks

Alma

I don't know about that specific model but Fuji's have an excellent reputation. I would just ride the bike, make sure it fits you and that its been well mantained.

Enjoy!

Make sure the bike fits is yor number one most important thing. Also you will be needing some help with fitting and accessories so I would make sure to buy it from reputable bike shop that is close to you.

Hello Alma, the Fuji should be a good entry level bike. If you are going to use it on the road at all, you could consider changing the tyres on it so that you have slicks instead of knobbies. Knobbies are much better on dirt and gravel.

Also, where are you located?
