    New guy here

    I'd like to say hello to everyone in one the friendliest forums I have been on in a while. I'm learning a lot by all the helpful advice I have been reading. Such as never to mess with my derailleur screws and leave it to a LBS(until I know more about the they're only going to charge 20 bucks to adjust the front and rear ones for me.

    I haven't rode a bike since I was16. Back then it was a GT and a Redline BMX.I was into flatland real heavy.Now in my late 30's I rented a 7 speed Comfort bike on the bike trail last month and was instantly hooked, I forgot how much fun being on a bike is.

    I wanted a bike bad but being on disability puts a damper on the ol' budget. I ended up getting a Schwinn Mirada on craigslist really cheap. Now I'm selling tons of stuff on ebay towards a Cannondale Trail 6, Specialized Hardrock SE, Trek 3700, or maybe a GT Avalanche 3.0 or a Raleigh Talus 3.0. Are all these bikes good for beginners ?

    P.S. I tend to ramble a lot

    All the bikes you listed are well made and will suite you fine. The most important aspect is ensuring that they fit you properly.

    Welcome to a great forum!

    Although I must say $20 to adjust derailleurs seems a bit high to me.
