I’m in need of a new bike for running errands around the neighborhood and, for once, I have no idea what I’m looking for.
I want an American made bike (obviously) and I’m so short that I usually need the smallest female option. I want it to be white, black, or silver – my last bike had pink on it (because it was the smallest female option, they only offered a black and pink colorway… so frustrating) and I think that’s why I never rode it. (I donated it before we moved and when I was in the midst of my Marie Kondo “Does it bring you joy” spree…).
Other than that, I have no idea what I need… a single speed? a 3 speed? What is worth customizing? What is the safest? There are so many options… and I’m lost.
But these are pretty… gotta start somewhere, right?!
Any other American made bike brands that I’m missing? What do you look for in a bike? Also… any American made bike helmets? I can’t seem to find any, but that will be my next purchase once I find a bike!
