So once again I have decided to turn to the HTF After Hours Lounge for some buying advice. I've been wanting to get a bicycle for a while now, and I've decided to do some research but frankly I don't know where to start. I'm looking mainly for something to ride around the neighborhood on just for some excercise. I don't need anything exotic, but I'd like something good and reliable, and preferrably light weight. I'm thinking an inexpensive mountain bike might be the way to go. I'll mostly be on the street, but if I have the opportunity to hit a simple trail, I'll go for it. Nothing dangerous or exciting though. So I figure I don't need anything with a fancy suspension or the like. So anyways, where do I start? Any sites I can do some research at? Any brands to look for or to avoid? And any cool gadgets that are a must have? All my prior bike knowledge comes from BMX bikes back in the 80's so I really don't know what's out there right now.
