I have a couple of bikes available to me at no cost but not sure they are good for winter. One is a Trek 4300 and also a 4500. I can also get a Specialized Camber Comp which seems a little bit over kill. If the above bikes are not good ones I sure would take some recommendations and don't want to spend over $700.00
I have ridden a Trek 4300 through 8 winters. It's a perfect bike for winter riding as is just about any mountain bike that fits and is in good working order.
