Is it legal to ride bikes on the sidewalk in your area?

I'm not clear on the legalities of this. I would like to ride my downtown without putting myself at risk by riding on the street. But I am worried I might get a ticket for riding on the sidewalk.

Your inseam would fit the 17.5 no?

In any case, the 7100 would be the bike for you.

I don't have any road bikes, as I'm more of a mountain biker.

I did buy a Trek 7300FX hybrid for $150 in pretty good condition in a size that fits me. Off CL.

My GF calls me a bikaholic

I bought six bikes in the last three months.

It may sound excessive, but these are all used bikes I got Craigslist, so I paid a fraction of retail.

Hello, my name is Austin-rider, and I'm a...

Well, I picked up the 7300FX today. It is a lot lighter than the 7100. And the 17.5 in. fits me better. The guy sold it to me for $150. So, I got a 7300FX and a 7100 - BOTH for $220 total. :)

Well, I just found another Trek hybrid for sale. 2004 7300FX for $175. Is that a pretty good deal? The size may be more appropriate for me, and I like it's performance-oriented focus.
