    Thought I would ask before I buy

    I decided just to try to get something different. But instead of buying on an impulse I thought to get some opinions. Tell me if this would be a good buy:

    If it's the one you showed me in the PM you sent...honestly, I'd pass on it and keep looking. If I were you, in all honesty...I'd ride the Mongoose for a little while. Even if you just ride the street and on paths and work on your fitness. Save your pennies...I know it's hard...I have two kids, car payments, mortgage, ect. But scrape up a minimum of $500. That can get you a pretty decent used bike most of the time. If you look around the local shops, you might even get really lucky and they might have something from last year or even from a couple years ago that they will give you a huge discount on. My last bike I got last year, it was a 2013 model so it was nearly 50% off.

    Not sure what size you need...but this something that wouldn't be too bad to get started on. Might talk them down a little in price....it's about a $500 bike new. $300-$350 wouldn't be a bad price IMO and would do MUCH MUCH MUCH better than the Mongoose or that Raleigh you were looking at.
