    New question here. Beginner biker - what bike to choose for $500 or less?

    So I know that this kind of question probably gets posted regularly, but I'm going to do it anyway.

    I'm looking for a multi-purpose women's bike for $500 or under. I will be doing a triathlon this summer and that is a road course. I live in CO, so I will also be doing some mountain biking. Is there a bike that would be good for both purposes?

    Any suggestions?

    What you are looking for is called a cross bike. It looks like a road bike but has wider tires that have knobbies. One example is the Kona Jake. Brand new they are probably out of your price range, but if you know what to look for you could probably find a used one in your budget.
