So I REALLY want to start bike commuting to work (from East Liberty to Downtown and back), but I’m having difficulty obtaining a bike. 1. I need to figure out WHAT TYPE of bike to get, as well as 2. figuring out where I should get it.
I wanted to do FreeRide and build my bike, but I don’t have a lot of time for that right now (would like to volunteer later) and just looking to buy one. But I have no idea what kind of bike to get!
I went to REI and picked their bike guy’s brain and I think I’ll try out some of their bikes when the weather gets nicer. My question to you all is: what do you recommend I look for?
I want to be able to commute, first and foremost, but I would also like to take it out on the trails…maybe even more Mt. Bike terrain. Leaning more towards a hybrid or trail bike modified for the road, but what do you all think?
