bump... some good info in this thread already. Any opinions on a hybrid bike. My optimal price range is ~$400.. max I can go is 5 bills maybe... I went to look today at the local bike shops but nothing was open on Sunday. I am hoping for a great used deal but are there any brands I can seek out that will be new for that price?? I wanted to avoid dicks sporting goods and shop local, I am so afraid of buying a shit bike. They had diamondbacks and Nishiki bikes that felt comfortable but I don't want to get got... Any experience with these?
Here's a hott chick so people don't skip my bump and answer OP instead from years ago:
