Back into cycling ...


if you have a mag or windtrainer then lots is within your reach. Even if you hav3 to buy one, there should be many suitable bikes available locally via Marketplace, kijiji, etc. Look for a bike that fits you without major adjustments or fitting super long or short reach stems, seatposts stc. As you'll be riding in urban or very easy suburban settings almost any reasonable bike will do as long as it fits. An example: I recently bought an old late 80's/early 90's Kuwahara Cascade in essentially brand new condition for CAD $95 (USD $75). No rust, no tire rot, excellent mechanical and cosmetic condition. Everything is stock and perfect. I should give it a tuneup, but it works flawlessly now.

if you don't know, the Cascade used a mix of Deore DX and LX parts, and Ritchey Vantage Sport rims.
