How Klutzy am I? VERY KLUTZY! I am looking for a bike (>$450) that I can use confidently and safely so I would take it out more than 4x/yr. I like the idea of the pedal forward design with a low bar allowing me to flat foot at stops but the bikes I've seen are so bulky. The tires are wide and the frames so heavy I feel like I'm riding a big tricycle! First, do you have any suggestions for bikes with the pedal forward design and low bar? Second, any suggestions for making the bike a bit sleeker like getting narrower tires? Lastly, I prefer 8 or less gears (too distracting!) but wonder do these bikes cover the same range as say a 21 gear bike, just skipping the in-between gears or do they just offer the lower range of gears? Thanks!
