    you can. what do you plan on using the bike for and do you have any style in mind (e.g., road bike, mountain bike, commuter, hybrid, touring)?

    Mostly for road riding.

    Nothing hardcore, I have a beach cruiser which is a nice bike, but I'd like to get a little more serious about riding.

    trek makes a line called fx (fitness bikes). i think they're entry level fx bike is around $600. you could get one for $500 or less used, i'm sure (maybe even one of the more expensive models). i'd look on your local craig's list and check used bikes. if you see one you like, post it here or in a new thread and i'll take a look. wetback and walleye slayer are super into bikes and would probably be even more helpful. i'll look around at other new models that are around $500 and good bikes.

    Mountain biking is more fun imo. Ive borrowed road bikes and it tried it. It just wasn't for me.

    I recently went old school and picked up a P.K. Ripper street bike
    had one of the OG Rippers back in the early '80s
