Electric, take a look at the Specialized and Trek line. I bought the Specialized HardRock (I actually traded in a Diamondback Outlook) and I am very very happy with it! The Trek 4300 sells for around $300 which is more of a really good urban bike. The HardRock frame (from what lbs says) is more of a mtb frame than the Trek is.

Most ppl will tell you to get a bike that fits you best. What are your vitals? i.e. height and weight.

When I first got the HardRock it was at an even 30 pounds. After slight mods, I have it down to 26

Definitely go for test-rides and see what you like. You dont want to be stuck with a bike that you dont like simply because it was inexpensive.

good luck.
