Do you have/ride a bike?

Tell me which bike I should get. But it has to be cheap! I know, I know, for $200 I will get a crappy bike, I'm aware of this. That's okay!

BIKES!!!!

Actually, a unicycle is the way to go!
11 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Wednesday 3/10/10 - 7:42:04 PM EST (GMT-5)
Oh most definitely.
11 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Wednesday 3/10/10 - 7:42:39 PM EST (GMT-5)
I would also love a bike - I miss being able to go for rides.
But I can't even afford a crappy bike
11 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Wednesday 3/10/10 - 7:43:35 PM EST (GMT-5)
I'm sorry
I miss riding too
I haven't had a bike in 10 years

I used to have a bike, but when my parent's moved they took it with them because my step-sister wanted it.
I wished they'd asked me first..
11 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Wednesday 3/10/10 - 7:47:13 PM EST (GMT-5)
How rude! They really just took it?

I used to have a mountain bike, but riding in Buenos Aires is quite dangerous and I didn't feel safe, so I gave it to my sister who lives in a small town. That was in 2000..

How much do low-end bikes cost over there?
11 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Wednesday 3/10/10 - 7:49:25 PM EST (GMT-5)
I don't think they realised that I wanted it..

I think they cost about the same - I haven't checked the price ever (because I've never actually bought a bike)
11 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Wednesday 3/10/10 - 7:51:26 PM EST (GMT-5)
geez.. couldn't hurt to ask!

oh I see - same here, my last bike I'm pretty sure my parents got for me, so I'm a total newb when it comes to what to look for in a bike!

When people still rode bikes in this city, you could get a good one for less than 200. Much less.

I have no idea about that now. Just make sure you don't fall and get road rash.
11 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Wednesday 3/10/10 - 8:06:07 PM EST (GMT-5)
oh, ow, road rash. I think I've had enough of that as a kid to last me a lifetime. how's it going dave?
11 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Wednesday 3/10/10 - 8:13:53 PM EST (GMT-5)
I never liked wearing shorts, so I thankfully avoided it. Things are well, Ms. Cam.

You look well. At least your av does. How are things?
11 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Wednesday 3/10/10 - 8:33:47 PM EST (GMT-5)
ha..lucky!

thanks Mr. Dave things are good! I'm too excited about getting a bike and it's all I can think about.

11 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Wednesday 3/10/10 - 8:58:21 PM EST (GMT-5)
Just remember to wear pants.

You can actually get a fairly good bike for $200 - it just won't be new is all.

used bike? hm, interesting, never thought of it..
11 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Thursday 3/11/10 - 1:30:34 AM EST (GMT-5)
Craig's list it. Or whatever the equivalent is wherever you are. Still Canada?

All the way-into-bikes people will give me crap for this, but a bike's a bike. Unless you're racing or jumping from mountain to mountain, you don't need anything that's not-crappy.

I'm riding a bike my mom won in 1985. It works fine.

Yeah, but that's really not the case. I mean, you don't need fancy or new or anything. And some of the older bikes are actually made really well. But some of the department store brands are just junk. They're made very poorly and sort of fall apart after a couple hundred miles. I'll put it this way: at the community cycles shop I worked at where we gave away bikes, these types would go straight to the dumpster.

The bike I ride every day probably dates to the 60s or 70s. And it's an awesome bike that I can't imagine ever giving up.

thanks pample, catch

wow, that's a pretty old bike.. good to know it's still in good shape!

the bikes I used to ride as a kid were also from the late 70's!
11 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Thursday 3/11/10 - 12:02:07 PM EST (GMT-5)
I have a schwin I think it cost around 400?
Its not a real cyclists bike, but I ride it a lot and its fun
11 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Thursday 3/11/10 - 12:03:05 PM EST (GMT-5)
Face might have an idea...

then again he might be so far removed from what you or I would ride he might not know.

Id beinterested in knowing how much his bikes were though
11 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Thursday 3/11/10 - 12:04:52 PM EST (GMT-5)
I got my bike new at walmart last year for $70
It'd be in better shape if I took better care of it.

I riding around town and through the river trails around here. It's soooo nice
11 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Thursday 3/11/10 - 12:05:26 PM EST (GMT-5)
yeah, I think face would recommend a total "pro" bike and that is SO not what I need.

$400 isn't so bad, jb. I checked out a couple bike shops in the area and that's what most of their bikes seem to cost. Is yours a mountain bike? Pic?
