Lately, I’ve been considering buying a new bike that I could ride to work and I’ve been looking for recommendations and it suddenly dawned on me that this might be a good place to ask. I live roughly four, relatively flat, miles (6.5km) from my office here in Scotts Valley and I have an old dead $g(Diamondback bike) mountain bike I’m afraid to ride for fear of the rusted spokes killing me. I’d like to replace it with something similar but geared towards comfortable rode riding as I’d prefer not to arrive at work in a complete sweat. I heavily (pun intened) favor lifting weights to aerobic excersize and figure a bike would be a great way continue avoiding the treadmill. Lastly, I’d rather not spend a lot of money which I suppose is the real kicker. Does such a bike exist? If so, what would it be?
Oh, btw, I’m slighly over 6 feet (184cm) tall.
