Illinois girl here! & advice, please?
Hey there. I'm new to these forums, obviously, because I'm kind of new to biking all over again. That sounds odd, right? Well, I used to bike alllll the time in high school (okay, that's only a few years ago... but still!), but I haven't really since, except for maybe a few times during the summers. Now that it's starting to feel nice again, I really want to ride my bike to school/work.
I sought out this message board because I need advice on picking out a bike. I have a Schwinn cruiser that I got because, to be honest, it's pink and totally adorable, also it was cheap. However, it's not the best bike for making real trips. Advice, please! What do you recommend for a college student (i.e. relatively poor - I'm thinking at most $200) who plans to ride it on the road for 10 miles daily?
I really appreciate any input!
