Hello to All!

I rode several bicycles when I was a kid including one French 10 speed that was quite good. I've had a couple of bicycles in the intervening years. I'm now looking for a bike that I can take with me when we go out in our Travel Trailer and to get some exercise. I'm looking at a Citizen Miami as a inexpensive starter.

It's definitely inexpensive! I think it might work if you aren't planning on using it a lot. It seems a bit heavy though, and even though it's got Shimano parts, the website isn't telling you what model parts are on the bike (which means that the parts probably aren't really high quality).

Thanks for your information. I realized that the Citizen Miami was not a High Quality bicycle. We don't intend on riding on long trips so we think that it will be good enough. We're not sure that we want to get back into bicycling so we are starting out with a lower cost bicycle and will upgrade if we find we will be using it a lot.
