Hi, I'm new here so I hope this is in the right forum. I am lookong at buying a new bike. I am not a hard core rider, I just want something to ride around the neighborhood, maybe on some dirt roads, or on EASY trails. I went to my local bike shops and one recomended a Raleigh Venture 4.0
and the other recomended a Del Sol LXi 6.2
I would like to stay below $400 and both of these fit that bill. I know that these are both entry level bikes of similar design, but does one have an edge over the the other as far as brakes, shifter etc? Should one or both of these be avoided? Is there another bike of that design and price range that I should look at instead? Your input is appreciated.
