I'll be heading off to school at Notre Dame, and am looking for a mountain bike i can ride around campus in all weather (including lots of snow).
I really don't have any knowledge about bikes, but I've read blogs/tips on riding in snow (getting fatter tires, fenders etc.).
1. I'm only 5 foot 1 (female). According to some sites, I should get a 14" frame (or thereabouts), but when bikes are advertised, they say 20", 24" etc. What does the 20", 24", 26" etc. refer to?
2. Anyone have a bike to recommend? I can't afford to spend more than $200 total.
