Hello, I am looking to get into biking and love the clean look of the single/fixed gear bikes, however i live in the suburbs of new york and think i might benefit more from a multi-gear bike, any thoughts? paid visit to LBS and guy was no help. does anyone know of a multi-gear bike with the single gear look and feel? what size would i need (5'8" 180 lbs)? im on a budget and would like to spend around $300 if possible. thanks in advance for all your help.
