Okay, bike (cycle) enthusiasts!!

I've decided I am going to start riding a bike to work once the weather gets a tad warmer. It's only 5.8 miles both ways.

Any recommendations or brands to target, or stay away from?

I'm not looking to spend a lot of money -- and will probably wind up just buying something used.

I'll dish out a couple of extra dollars if I can get sweet, red/blue KU streamers and a sweet horn too. So, that won't be an issue.

Thanks!

If you also get a bike we can go shop for helmets together!

This. If you're looking for an extra workout, it's not a bad option.

I may be looking at hybrids this summer. This is the one I think I want, but I certainly don't need it:

Although, if I wore that helmet my goatee would make a pretty awesome bush.

I assume that one works well for Plow as it would be difficult to discern if he were wearing the helmet or not.

That sounds like an awesome idea. But no stealing my one and only KOM!

A lot of bike shops in my area clearance out last year's models this time of year. I have seen basic Specialized Hardrock mtb at $250. You don't get things like disc brakes at that price but it's a solid bike that you can update later if you want. A used bike might be cheaper at first but you will likely have to pour money into it.

Just don't go with a department store bike. Specialized and Trek offer some nice, low priced entry level bikes.

Come on, it's not about need. And that's a nice bike; I considered the Sirrus last year when I got my newest bike.

Oh you done done it. Now I know where it is. I'm adding that to my calendar for my next trip back that way.

Seriously though some people are crazy about that. I know a couple of guys who just go around trying to poach each other's KOMs. And they actually legitimately dislike each other.
