Hi, I'm Chloe<3

Hello, my name is Chloe, I live in Deer Valley Arizona. Just saying hi. If anyone would help me find a new bike I would be thankful, I've been searching the internet but ugh, I can't find anything I like. I just want to go riding in the wind, enjoy myself, ya know? I will be more specific if anyone is interested in helping me. Thanks and hello again.<3

Do you have any idea what kind of riding you'd like to do? Road? Mountain? What kind of budget?

Welcome to BF!

Thanks! Err...I have no idea. That's why I am in love with this forum because everyone knows so much. I want something not too flashy, simple, vintage, with a basket, really fun sort of 60's-like maybe. Enduring also so I can ride it anywhere, forest, sidewalk. pretty but nice. Budget, probably not over $600, I'm requesting it as a Chritsmas gift from my parents. It's all I want.

I really like this bike but I don't live in the area its sold. I want something like it at least, I just have no idea where to look.

Here it is:

You know, I think you're looking for something like a Schwinn Continental or Varsity...or perhaps a mixte style?

Show us your mixte (mhendricks' new happy place)

Look at #212 in particular.

These are vintage bikes...each one is unique.

If you visit the Classic & Vintage forum, you will see bikes listed on CraigsList...here's one in your area (you would have to provide the basket, though ):

http://phoenix.craigslist.org/bik/443230139.html

What do you think?

That's great! I never even knew of that site, also browsing the Classic & Vintage section, I'm bound to find what I'm looking for. So helpful, thanks so much! (:

You are quite welcome!

Even if that bike's not quite what you want, you should be able to find something perfect with a bit of patience.

Just ask us in C & V, we'll be happy to give you advice if you need it .
