Not so new from Seattle, WA.

Hi all,

Well let me start this way, i use to ride a "bicycle" around two years back and i use to use it mainly for commute. It was a hybrid street bike. Then i moved to motorcycles.. and now i ride my motorcycle but i also now want to get back to my bicycle and so i am here.

I sold my old bike which was very old but now i want to buy a street bike may be used to start with..

can somebody pls suggest me some brands and how do i start.. well my previous bike, i just looked up on craigslist and bought it.. but now i really want to do some research as to what types are available and which types are used for what type of riding..

Thanks in advance.

Determine your budget.

Visit local bike shops.

What road types will you want to ride on?

Will you need to carry much stuff with you.

Plans for touring?
