    New rider suggestions <$400

    Hello,
    I am new to riding and wanted to get a bike that I could use for a couple of years. I plan on using it for commuting all year round and some light trails.
    I live on a graduate student salary...aka not much... and was looking to spend less than $400. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

    New rider suggestions &lt;$400

    Look for a three to five year old bike on Craigslist or local ads at shops. The twin cities has a facebook "trading post" that is a great resource.

    Post this in the beginner forum and I bet you would get 5x the responses.
    I am certainly uncertain, at least I'm pretty sure I am.
