I never learned to ride as a kid, but I've been looking to ease into it. Gotta get around town, y'know? There aren't any classes for it in my area, so I'm stuck trying to teach myself.
Any bikes good for adults learning to ride? Preferably on the cheaper end, but any suggestions are welcome. If you have any tips for a new rider, that'd be great too.

what do you know? I am considering doing so, but bike X is made in America, it is more expensive, but I will have less duties to pay because of NAFTA (I think), bike Y is taiwan, but imported from America, but not American built, so I will pay more duties. etc. What do you know?
Please share all import stories. ty.

Bicycle Maintenance General

I've seen some pretty useful threads on this board over the past few months, and would like to make an attempt at creating a thread for general bike maintenance discussion. Considering there are a wide range of riders from different climates and disciplines, it might be interesting to share our regiments and see what opinions and suggestions can be offered.
Just because anon loves surveys, here is a quick one.
>Average ride (time/ distance per day/ week)
>Maint. Schedule/ intervals
>Where maint. is performed (LBS, garage, bedroom, etc)
Besides that, post: Stories, questions, recommendations, products you stand by, etc.
Hopefully this thread can evolve and cover a wide scope!

"Ill do this trip for this much"
"Id do it for less"
