My mom's interested in a bike... recommendations?
Hi all. A visitor from the SS / FG section here.
I just arrived at my hometown today for the holidays, and while talking about my biking adventures and misadventures in NYC, my mom revealed that she'd like to have a bike.
Nothing crazy. No road bikes or MTB's or track bikes. Just something sort of roadster-ish, simple, fun, for her to pop a basket on, and commute here and there.
Now... if we were in NYC or anywhere in the states, it would be easy enough to find her a nice little used vintage bike, much in the same way I've found bikes for myself. But it's slim pickins here in PR
where my parents live. Most shops only sell MTB's or road bikes. I've seen like 1 or 2 classifieds that may fit the bill but they are WAY overpriced. So I'm thinking I may just have to get one online somewhere.
Any suggestions, as far as shops to browse (I've checked bikesdirect so far, but trying to find more to be able to compare) and/or specific bikes that may be appropriate?
