I have been all over this site and cant find a answer for my issue, so I am hoping to find one here.
I am a mother of 3 little girls 8,2,and 4. I have been disabled due to Lumbar issues that have kept me almost completely immobile for the past year due to a traffic accident. I was told by numerous doctors I needed back surgery. I refused. I now have been healing with the help of a chiropractor.With the doctors consent have been walking daily and now am very bored and want to move on from pushing a double stroller.
With that said, I have been on a hunt for the perfect bicycle. At first it was a cruiser, but I have discovered not Ideal for trailer and baby seats. Then I thought I wanted a mountain bike, but I can only do very light tails. I need to be upright and comfortable is priority. Just hoping for guidance, we will be riding as a family and I will be riding to build strength and endurance.
Used or new? Comfort or Hybrid?MTB or Crossover? Build a bike? I went to a few bike shops and they all carry totally different brands? And different suggestions?Gears? Shocks? Is there things I should look for since I have health issues? I thought I could walk in and pick out a bike, but things have gotten way more complicated.
Sorry for such a long post just want to get out there and ride already
Thanks For Looking!
