Used is the way to go, especially as the previous owner will have run out some of the bike's quirks. The thing about bikes is the beautiful way you aren't locked into a brand. If you like a Schwinn...

If you are already going to spend more than 200 on anything, go just a hair bigger and get something decent from a bike shop. They even have the occasional sweet deal on an older bike that will be...

Well, I guess I no longer qualify as a Clyde. I'm now 195 pounds. I used to weigh 375 pounds. I am 6'6" tall. I'm starting to look downright emaciated!

Happy to report that I now have a helmet and will wear it to ride my bike. Four bucks at Goodwill for a Giro Havoc. Not a bad find at all. Now I can set a better example for the kids. ...

Yes, that is kind of true, even though I already shelled out for the used Fuji. Today I rode a whole six miles and to me it was a big deal to do so, since the three miles there was further than I...

The whole idea is so cool!
Not real handy for the el cheapo rider to get into, though.
At least if the wind will not blow, you still have your pedals.
