rowpiecesso i have done a lot of research today about all the different variants and whatnot and gear that i need to get and it is a lot more expensice than i originally thought. I'm planning to possibly get a cheap walmart one today due to funds being a lot liwer. then hopefully i am able to get a job over the summer and save up enough for a good one from the local REI store. i really want to start as soon as possible so hopefully the walmart bike is not as terrible as some that i've had before / seen in videos. I appreciate all the tips though. thank u
i really, really, would check craigslist/user stores but especially craigslist before you buy anything from walmart.
i didn't mention it before because i thought you would just go to a used store and spend like 250-300 (depending where you are maybe up to 500), but if you're in the <200 range more then just check craiglist and be patient for a week or two. bikes are like the most commonly sold thing on craiglist esp. in college towns
