I got a bike!!!
I bought a Magna 26 inch mountain bike from a friend who won it in a contest and is unable to ride a bicycle. I paid her nearly full price for it ($150). It is a discount bike - off the rack. But since I am leaving in August, and I just wanted something to ride for the summer, I thought it was a good place to start. It has rear suspension, an easily adjustable (or interchangeable if I don't find it comfortable) saddle, and 21 speed gears. A friend of mine does a lot of mountain biking and she convinced me to give it a shot, so having a bike I can take off roads will be nice. Then of course, when I get to France, I'll make a decision about what kind of bike to buy to commute back and forth to work. Thanks for all your advice guys!!!
