Start with an old Yugoslavian Pony or East German MIFA(or some other ubiquitous 40yo brand), get the feel for it and find out what you like. Upgrade to nicer when you want, but you will always have a functional beater. Spray paint beater in color of your favorite team, seat, tires, fenders, lock. Meanwhile research gear inches and what you want in your next bike. Good luck and welcome to our world.
