Bike suggestions for bike path riding
Hi all. I am middle-aged and used to ride my road bike to work. It's been awhile though! Now, my wife wants me to ride with her on our beach bike paths (cement, some sand) - leisurely! I am going to get rid of my road bike, and get something easier to ride in these conditions. I looked at a used Ross Mt. Khahad (spelling?) 21-speed, 26" wheeled bike the other day for $100. I am 6'5". Is this the type of bike I want for this kind of riding? (This is a "mountain bike", isn't it?) Does anyone know if this is a good bike? How do I measure the frame to see if it is a large bike, medium, etc? What size should I opt for at my height?
Thanks so much for any advice.
