Buying a new bike
June 6, 2007 7:21 PM Subscribe
I'm going to be at U Colorado in Boulder for the summer and I'm interested in buying a bike. I'm willing to spend about $200 on a new one (which I'll take back to my school after the summer) and I'd preferably like a city bike that I can also occasionally take off-road. Since I got my last bike when I was in middle school (I'm 20 now), I wanted to see if anyone could offer advice or a guide on buying a new one.
I know that there are a lot of great bike paths around Boulder and I'd like to check them out. I'm by no means a hardcore biker (as should already be evident), but I want to ride some trails and at the same time drive around CU's campus comfortably. Can anyone suggest a good place to buy a bike? Also, what types should I be looking for and is there anything I should be aware of? Thanks!
