I am new to this forum and would appreciate any advice the "experts" here can offer me!
I am looking to buy a bike. I'm interested in a mountain bike (although not hardcore) ... I was considering a hybrid but think it may not take me on the paths around my home as well as on the road (I live in a small village near London and will probably use it for groceries as well).
I am 33, 5' 2" and of normal stature (120 lbs). I've tried some men's bikes and find them too big, but I'm having a hard time finding many women's bikes.
Does anyone have any recommendations? I'm looking to spend up to around $500 and the only feature I'm convinced I need is front sus. I won't ride in rain or do severe downhill so don't think disc brakes are required.
Thanks in advance...
