    I'm looking for a decent bike for a decent price. It's going to be used to go to and from the gym, about 6 miles each way. I wont off road at all so pretty much any bike will do. Are there any good websites to buy a bike on? I checked out some sporting goods stores and they are all so damn expencive, like $700+

    check craigslist in your area... you'll probably be able to get a bargain on a good, gently-used bike

    I bought a brand new Trek 3900 for $300, it can be used for pretty much anything you need. I live in the city and ride it on the streets and sidewalks just fine. Very comfortable bike.

    Pretty run of the mill, but it gets the job done. Any semi-decent bike shop should carry a line of treks.
