Bicycle

[ #12149 ]
Last weekend, while my export-from-hell was running, I went bike shopping. I've got it narrowed down to a Giant Sedona, Specialized Expedition (2002 model), or the Bianchi Boardwalk. The first two come in under $300. The latter under $600.

Anyone have any reccomendations?

      Yes, thats what these bikes are, although they're being called "comfort bikes" instead of hybrid. They're very nice to ride. I was essentially looking for a hybrid, but got steered this direction. (I had a hybrid before, and loved it.)
