  • I have a Jamis Earth Cruiser. My mom went through several bikes trying to find one that rode as well as mine. She finally gave up and just bought a Jamis too. But it all depends on what type of riding you are going to be doing. I would go to a reputable bike shop and talk to them, they can help fit you as well.

  • Riding around the neighborhood or maybe trails. Just for some exercise mostly.

  • If you will be riding on pavement as well as trails, I would get a hybrid bike. Schwinn makes a good hybrid bike for around $200.
