My old bike was stolen last fall and i'm thinking now might be the time to look into a new purchase before the spring rush.
Although I ride almost everyday I'm really a newbie when it comes to bikes. I need some advice as I really have no idea where to start. A little about me:
-I do alot of urban type riding say to and from work, errands and so on however there are alot of trails to ride within and not far outside from city limits here in Portland Maine.
-I'm 5'9 175lbs
-I'm looking to spend somewhere in the neighborhood of 400-500 bucks?
I'd love a few suggestions that i could follow up on at the local shops. Thanks.
