i agree as well. i own a Giant and a Specialized, they are just a little pricier/fancier than the Dicks bikes but you cant beat the Dicks bikes for the price. especially with the type of riding you are doing you do not need anything fancy. go to dicks, walmart bikes are a joke.Unless you are gonna be SERIOUSLY INTO mountain biking , and doing it all the time on extremely rough terrain,....save some money and go to wal mart . While the suggestions the others made are good , I dont think they are reasonable for the casual biker who is not looking to push the bike and themselves to the extreme . My wal mart bike holds up well and serves me well with no problems, for what I want it to do. Why spend hundreds of dollars on a bike that spends as much time parked or hung up in the garage as it does in actual use.
