    Looking for advice on commuter bike.

    Hello,

    I have very little knowledge about bike, and looking for advice on my commuter bike, and something I can take onto trail every now and then. (not a serious mountain biker at all.)

    My budget is $200, and will be riding mostly on the road in Seattle. And, I am a 5ft 8in tall male.

    Would something like this work fairly well? Is the price reasonable?
    Trek bike 4100

    Thank you,

    first of all, there is a whole sub-forum devoted to commuting. I suggest you start there.

    you are not going to find much that is worthwhile for $200. you are going to need to find a used bike that is being sold by someone who is a) very generous and willing to give it away, b) has a worn out pile of junk for sale, or c) does not know that they have a nice bike that is worth more.

    the Trek 4100 is a TINY little ladie's bike. It does not look like a 16" frame to me, but apparently it is. maybe it looks short because it's a ladies' bike?
