Picking a Bike
Post #1. I want a bike to ride 95% of the time on the road/pavement of some sort.
Once in a while I'll go on very non challenging dirt paths. I want to sit mostly upright.
I am 6'2" and 200+ pounds, but I am loosing weight, headed toward my goal of 191.
I was shown the 27 speed SPECIALIZED CROSSTRAIL COMP at $850 new and the SPORT
too for hundreds less. I like the idea of 700 sized tires. What makes and models would
you all recommend? My taste, looks wise, the classic Schwinn with Tank, fenders, [the
front having the built in headlight] rack on the back, etc. You get the idea. I'm 49 Y.O.
Depending on how much you want to spend, and what level of components you will be happy with; Trek 7200, 7300 or 7500. Sturdy, serviceable bikes. bk
Thank you for those suggestions friend.
