I need a good sturdy bike, and I don't have much money to spend on it. Let's say $350 max (really - I know people on HTF love to give suggestions for $400+ items when people say they want to spend $350 - this is a real limit). Are the bikes they sell at Costco for about $150 any good or are they as bad as my 10 year old $100 hand-me-down Huffy? I've seen some bikes that look really nice at REI www.rei.com for around $350. I'm not racing or a "serious bicyclist" so I don't need anything state-of-the-art, I just want a good sturdy bike that will last a few years. Looking for a road bike with upright handlebars and the capability to accomodate baskets and carrying capacity.
