Big dude, small budget.
I'm doing the home improvement thing right now, so my $$ is tight. I'd like to get my hands on a "steal" of a used bike that will fit my needs.
I already read that newbies should NEVER buy online, but I'm thinking craigslist is my best chance to get a bike on my budget.
I'm 6'2'' and about 230 lbs, although I'll drop quickly to about 210 once I start riding. I used to do some pretty serious BMX riding when I was a kid, and I have a great trail about 200 yards from my front door. I'll be doing some small jumps and easy to medium trails.
What should I keep my eye out for in terms of brands, size, and components? My range is at MOST $250
