Hi everyone. I am a 34 yr old female, 175 lbs. I am wanting to get started biking for exercise. I think I would prefer a bike that would put me in a more upright posture (wrists hurt too much being dumped on my upper body), and that I can go on-road and some off-road (gravel/dirt). My budget would be very low, like in the hundred or 200 range. Casual/occasional use only, to bike to and from grocery store and to and from horse boarding stable (both within two miles.)
Any recommendations, or types and brands to stay away from? Best sources? Things to check before buying a used bike? Thanks!!
PS I have a thread over in appraisals; trying to sell an old univega road bike! Check it out to tell me what is a fair asking price!
