    Any bike that is comfortable for you and makes you smile and want to bike more.

    In general, I would recommend a road bike for road riding and a mountain bike for trails if you need a slightly more specific idea during your bike search.

    What kind of riding do you want to do? Road? Light trails? I assume since you asked the question you don't want any rough or very technical trails. But there are a lot of bikes that do both on and off-road. There are many types of bikes. Also, what do you mean by health? If you haven't exercised in a long time, there are bikes designed for people who have been sedentary but want to get into the bike as fitness. There are also very high intensity bikes, and everything in between. Do you see yourself using drop bars, flat? Maybe curved towards you as you sit up? We need to narrow it down, a bit.

    Edit: just saw your other post. You mention weight loss, but not your current fitness. It's possible to be very fit, but need/want to lose weight. If you haven't been exercising and are nervous about riding a bike, a forward pedal bike like an Electra Townie, which puts you in the most comfortable and secure position possible, is a great one to try. (There are others that do the same, like the Trek Pure). If you feel a little more athletic/adventurous, then we still need to figure out what your riding goals are.

    I would also like to add that the most important thing about a bike is not which kind but if you use it consistently with intent and increase your time, distance and effort on a regular basis. No matter what kind of bike you use, it doesn't do anything if you spend all the time worrying about which bike and don't use it.

    This is most certainly a troll.

    Thought it was a weird post, but my mind didn't go there.

    I actually assumed that was the case since there is a separate thread that sounded like it even more.

    Guess I don't understand the point of the troll thing.

    I don't either. It's one thing to be an English language learner, but this one sounded like, no. And the fact there's no response, tells me I may have been right.
    Who knows, maybe I'm wrong.

    The message is quite suspicious - though spammers usually post nonsensical or extraordinarily general posts to a dozen or so old threads all at once. This one may have been a legit ESL person or may just have been testing the waters and seeing that you are not allowed a signature (where they usually stick their ad for purses or diet pills etc) for a period of time after joining, gave up.
