    For you anything will do, just don't get those beach cruisers, even the ones with gears.

    They are heavy and slow. Your best bet is a decent mountain bike because of their versatility, since you don't need it to commute.

    I like to just get on a bike and workout and ride miles. Makes you feel like a kid again and keeps me youthful.

Don't try any bike outside of your price range and remember you might need extra money for a lock, helmet etc.
    I appreciate the knowledge, gentlemen. I'm slowly working my way up to pulling the trigger on something.

    If you only want to spend $500, don't try the $800 bikes.

    i'm in the market for a roadie now. while i love this bike, it just can't be a commuter for me. i should have went with a hybrid instead of this one since i told the shop i would be on both trails and the road. i guess i got dealt with an insincere sales person that just wanted to sell an expensive bike. i let them know about it on yelp. but i still love this bike though. i've lost 7 pounds since getting it but it is definitely not for hauling my ass to work.

    I also have an original Schwinn Varsity with white grips. Looks like a damn hipster bike but fast as hell with suicide shifters. Not my picture but my bike with white wraps.



    Bought from an old retired man that decided to open a bike shop. The frame is too small for me so I may just have in the living room for decor purposes. Mine looks better. Hope to post pics of it later.
    Lol Varsity's are the worst road bike Schwinn made in the 70s. They are solid steel and slow as shit.

    I bought a big bmx bike on Friday. Itís just a bmx bike with 26 inch tires pretty much. A buddy of mine told me about them last week. I was looking around and they were sold out everywhere but I finally found a place that had some. Itís super fun.

    I actually just bought this Raleigh Route 3 hybrid a couple months ago. I'm not a crazy rider, but I've been riding almost every night a couple miles with my niece. I had borrowed a custom built road bike from my cousin while I was looking for something else, and the hybrid really helped. I do some light paths or gravel tracks on the weekends, but mostly I'm on streets, and after doing a real high end road bike, I could really feel the drag of a full suspension, so this really fit me well. I do wish I had a fully lock outable fork.

    There was a Kona I really wanted, but it was just too much of a pain in the ass to get my hands on. And there was also a Surly I considered, but it was too much money. This was about $700. I upgraded the pedals, the grips, and the seat.

    I also got my niece a fat tire 20" mongoose. She's 9. She loves it, but I didn't think it was a great idea, it's just too heavy for her. She does pretty well with it though. It's pretty advanced for her. Has 9 speeds, disc brakes. Coming off of the little kids razor bike, it's a pretty major step up.



    I also got her these Monkey Lights for the wheels that are really pretty sweet for 50 bucks a wheel. Check these things out. https://www.amazon.com/Monkey-Light-.../dp/B007FLHW3K
