I am new to the cycling scene and after doing much research on the internet have been recommended to start out with a Hybrid Bike. Since I am new to the scene I did not plan on spending four or five hundred dollars on a hobby I am not sure if I will follow through on. I went to my LBS and found two bikes that were in my price range. A Diamondback Kalamar for $269 dollars with two free tune ups. And at another LBS I found a Giant Cypress ST for $260 dollars with lifetime free tune ups. Again I know many of the people in this forum are hard core cyclists but I am just not there yet. Would anyone recommend any of these two bikes to a newbie?
