Ok...update! I dug out my husband's old mountain bike from the garage. It's a Bridgestone MB-6, 21 speed. It's a nice lightweight frame and rides smooth and quiet, decent brakes...except only two of the 21 gears work, the seat is uncomfortable, the handlebars are straight/too low...well....it's a mountain bike! LOL. So I took it to the local shop and they are going to put a little bit of a riser handlebar on there, fix the gears, put a more comfy seat on there. Then I should look pretty funny but at least be able to cruise to and from the barn and the grocery store comfortably. Maybe someday I could invest in an actual hybrid...
I don't know much about the Bridgestone MB-6 so maybe someone can tell me if it's a decent bike. Hubby said he paid around $400 for it somewhere around 1994.
