    You have to decide what type of riiding you want to do. Off road/mountain biking, recreational trails, touring, road racing. Then look for advice in the relevant sub-forum. In North America the Craigslist site for your area is probably best, as you can look at the bike and ride it before you hand over any cash. Bike shops usually have used bikes although they may not be on display in their showroom. Tell us where you live. Good luck.

    I've had several since 1999 but have settled on my beloved 2001 Litespeed Tuscany and my latest, a 2015 Cannondale Supersix EVO 105

    Here is the craigslist link. You'll have to check the cities near Glendale to see the bikes.
