I want to buy a bike. Part-road-bike-part-mountain-bike, something basic to start with. But there are so many! And the idiots at the stores I'm going to are exclusively "Um... This is a good bike, I think... *scratch foreheard*" Almost everytime, the 'bike expert' is at lunch. Grr.
I'm looking at spending between $300-400, but can go over if absolutely necessary.
