Myself and my girl friend decided today that we wanted to start riding bikes to get in better shape. We aren't going to go hardcore, but during the summer it would be nice to do about 5 - 10 miles a week. We aren't looking to break the bank due to the fact we are BROKE college students. I myself went to dick's and saw a Mongoose Maneuver which I really liked. I wanted to know your opinion on these bikes. Like I said before, I know a lot of you may rip these things apart, but I'm going to be a very casual biker, I don't need anything special, just something that is durable and is in the price range of below $200. If this helps, I'm 6'0, about 190lbs. Now for my gf. She seemed to like this Omega Quest. Looks like a nice bike, she liked how it rode inside the store, but when I look for this bike online, i find nothing. She is a very small girl, she is about 5'0, 95lbs max. She is also looking for something for casual riding, that is durable, and more in the price range of $150. So if you would be nice enough to help two newbs out we would really appreciate it greatly!
I'm going to post a link to my bike the Mongoose, but for some reason, there is NOTHING on her bike online.
Thanks in Advance! Hope to hear from you soon!
