    Hello From Toronto, Ont... Need Help

    Hello ; >

    So i have sold my 2nd car for the family and i have decided to ride a bike to work... I think it'll help me enjoy the commute as well as get some exercise cause with the new baby it's hard to find some time to get out.

    I have NO idea about what bike to get since i have not owned a bike in 20 years.. (when i was about 12).

    So i just need some help picking out a decent bike within the price range of $400 (used or new).

    or is that budget too low?

    Appreciate all your help in advanced.

    Welcome to the forums! Too low on the price is subjective. Will a $400 bike ride like a $4k dollar bike? No. Will a $400 bike get you there and back? Sure. You should be able to get a good used bike for that price. I would suggest getting to know a thing or two about your size of bike. For me a bike that fits is the most important part, it will make or break your riding future. Hope that helps.
