    Hello everyone! I haven't ridden a bike for many years. Three years ago I broke both of my wrists, have plates and screws in both so needless to say exercising is a difficult task. I would love to find a bike under 500 that I can ride around my neighbors and city that won't hurt my wrists to ride. I am guessing that I need to find a more upright sitting bike. Any suggestions are welcome. We only have three bike shops in town so I am afraid my choices may be limited. Btw my town/trails are paved and pretty flat.

    An Electra Townie will allow you to sit back with you feet stretched forward, and no weight on your hands. Should be in your price range, too.
