Edmonton - used or co-op, suggestions needed
In an extremely encouraging development, my girlfriend (who lives in Edmonton) has decided she'd like to get a bike for the summer, after not riding for many years. Since I'm in NW Washington state, I can't easily walk her through finding something quality in town. I'm inclined to send her to Bike Works, but having never been there, can anyone give me some input on the shop and whether there's a chance she'll be able to find something built that will work for her there? Is there a good shop selling used that she should visit instead? I'd like to find her something basic, just to "encourage" her to fall in love with cycling.
I've tried Craigslist but I think I'm spoiled with our Seattle-area used market; the rides available weren't worth pursuing. If anyone has a lead on something solid, used, and around $150 that didn't come from Canadian Tire I'd appreciate it. Thanks in advance.
