    The women I know all ride men's bikes, including me. If you can get on and off the bike comfortably, a men's bike might offer more selection on Craigslist. Those Breezer bikes are a lot better than...

    So sad. I always count my blessings when I just happen to notice the idjits riding at night with all dark bike/clothing/etc and no helmet. And no pedal reflectors. What a shame.

    Yes, Performance has sales every other week, or so it seems. Since this is your first bike, I also recommend not overspending. You might decide you want a road bike or a mountain bike. Fuji offers...

    There will be lots of choices in the $400-500 range. Fuji and Giant offer better value for the money than Trek, Specialized, Cannondale. You pay for the brand name with the big three. If there is...
