Upcoming possible birthday present. This bicycle will probably be used for: Farmer's market on weekends, convenience store trips, some general tooling around on summer days, riding to the park, etc. Not a race bike, commuter, or a mountain bike. We know nothing of bikes. Any idea of where to begin? Also -- sub $500. Gently used is OK. I know -- Craigslist. But I'm hoping some cyclists can give me a bit of an education of what I'm looking for. Does the bike I'm describing have a name? When I go kick the tires, what will I be looking for? Thanks.
