    I would have been okay not reaching the ground from the saddle, but I couldn't reach it straddling the top bar on the bike frame! I would have needed a stool to mount the bike! As it is on my bike,...

    I just spent three months riding and re-riding those same bikes. I ended up with the Alight 2, and I love it, but I'm much taller. They all felt almost equally good to me, though, so in the end I...
  3. Thanks! I really wanted to start on a hybrid so...

    Thanks! I really wanted to start on a hybrid so I could be more upright and keep an eye on my kids when we ride together, and be able to go on the occasional (fairly tame) gravel road with them. ...

    I finally made a decision! My husband patiently shopped with me at 11 different bike shops (many of them with three or four or five visits each) all over the state and patiently waiting while I rode...

    That's brilliant. I am totally using my phone. I always think I will remember things, but I forgot how much brain power I lose when I'm pregnant. I swear I am throwing up brain cells along with...

    I'm brand new here, and I think you are awesome! I would love to adopt your training schedule to get in better shape. I could probably stand to lose 40 pounds at least, and you make it sound so...

    See? I knew I wasn't crazy. I had that epiphany yesterday. My sweet husband said he was sure I would be happy with any bike I picked and that I should just choose one. I told him I was pretty...

    The Vita! Thank you! I remembered a bike I road at a shop in Cedar City that I really liked and could NOT for the life of me remember the name- that was it! It was more in the style of bikes I'm...

    Thank you everybody for your help!

    I really do think a comfort bike will be more conducive to riding about with my kids, especially if I need a seat or a trailer to ride occasionally. I just need...

    Riding for a cause sounds like such a cool thing. Good luck choosing a bike!
  11. Borrowing would be awesome, but I have no friends...

    Borrowing would be awesome, but I have no friends who bike. I'm in a super small town and rural area, which is awesome for riding around on roads, but not so great for finding friends who want to do...

    Easy peddling is a priority for me. If a men's bike will make it easier, I can definitely look that direction. I rode a men's Giant bike (can't remember the model) yesterday and it was pretty...

    What about something like the Giant Cypress DX (http://www.giant-bicycles.com/en-us/bikes/model/cypress.dx.w/18812/76155/) I rode it at one of the first dealerships, which is where the guy helping...

    I see! (I actually rode the Townie in orange- my favorite! Purple is probably my least favorite color, but it seems like the only color besides grey or black that most girl bikes come in is purple....

    I just looked at the Trek Pure Lowstep and it is super cute! I'll have to track that down and try it. I'm assuming it's advantage over the Raleigh is the lack of a suspension system? (And if I'm...

    I tried the Townies and while it was really fun to ride, it felt a bit heavy and bulky to me. (My husband absolutely LOVED the Townies- I wouldn't be surprised to see him choose one for himself for...

    I haven't even looked at mountain bikes. Would they be preferable because they lack the suspension? It might be worth considering because some of the roads we ride around here are gravel. My two...
  18. New here, and trying to pick a "pregnant" bike!

    So I am a HORRIBLE decision maker! I decided I wanted a bike when my husband started riding a lot. I have five kids who all ride bikes around the rural area where we live as well. I am almost...
