I have an excess of energy right now and I'm looking for a good bicycle option. I know the usual places to look such as Craigslist, etc. for deals. I am most likely leaning towards a road bike or a hybrid that would still be good for the road.
I haven't cycled much like ever, and one of my scary moments in high school was getting nailed by a truck as I turned into the road to my parents' house...So uh, I want to do this still, but something that could also be easily jacked to just work out on in my apartment would also be good.
Any brands models that are awesome or frightenly bad? What should I expect to pay for a solid used model? Is there such a thing as a helmet that is not retarded looking?
Thank y'all much.
