So I used to love biking, but haven't owned a bike in years. I do a lot of hiking and trail running in the mountain preserve up the road and I always see lots of bikers there and think "I want to do that too!" So I figured a new bike would be an excellent
reward for hitting ONEderland.
I don't have a lot of money but I was on craigslist last night and found TONS of used bikes for sale. So now I just need to know what to look for. I know I want a mountain bike so I can go on trails too but that's about all I know. I saw 7 speed bikes, 10 speed, even 21 speed! I was originally looking for a women's bike but I guess it doesn't really matter where the middle bar is. I'm also unsure about sizes, what average size would fit a 5'5" woman like myself with a 30" inseam from crotch to floor?
Any bike advice would be great!!
