    Hi from san Diego: few questions

    I am considering Bike to work. each way is hardly 2 miles.
    With my limited budget I am considering buying any schwinn bikes off the craiglist for ~200 relatively new but not brand new.

    I used to bike 8 miles till when I was 18 yr. I am 34 now and in good shape.

    I consider schwinn to be very good bikes but looke like people in this forum have snobbish attitude towards schwinn's bike holder.

    Thanks

    DD

    I've had several since 1999 but have settled on my beloved 2001 Litespeed Tuscany and my latest, a 2013 Cannondale CAAD 10.

    Welcome to BF.
    Schwinn used to be a good name but the quality is not what it once was so Schwinn is now sold at places like Wal-Mart. I'd recommend looking at other bikes on craigslist. Maybe you'll find a good deal. Also ask the folks in the Commuting forum about bikes they'd recommend.
