I'm looking to bike for exercise. I'm 23 and lift weights. Running seems to just be burning muscle along with fat. I heard biking burns strictly fat. I have about 300 dollars I'm willing to spend. Ill be biking local trails and streets. I don't know what I'm suppossed to be looking for. I went to local store and they recommended the raleigh m50 and offered a price break. They were pushing it pretty hard so I don't know if it's a good bike or good profit. I know the Mongoose name so I enquired about a Mongoose Rockadile SX20L. It's a little cheaper but they're telling me I'd be so much better off with the Raleigh. Truthfully, the Mongoose just looks a lot cooler but thats just me. Can anyone give me some advice?
Thanks for reading!
