Hi, all; I'm new here so I thought I'd ask a few questions before I actually buy something. I'm looking for a bike to fetch groceries, do errands up to around 12 miles and ride for fitness. I am in no way a hardcore bike guy. I've tried road bikes but they're way too uncomfortable for me. I need something in the hybrid/comfort bike realm. I don't want to go all the way comfort because I'd like the bike to be a bit nimble and quick, but I don't really want a true hybrid either because I'll never take it off pavement. Unfortunately my budget is pathetic. I'm looking in the $250-$350 range and there ain't much. At this point the two main contenders are a Diamondback Kalamar from Dick's and a Giant Cypress ST from a LBS. I know most advice would point me away from getting a bike at Dick's but it's definitely the cheapest one. I think maybe a Giant Cypress DX would be a good decision but I really don't think I can come up with the extra cash. I'd really appreciate some advice from more experienced riders. If I get the Diamondback will I hate it in 2 months? Will it last a couple years until I decide to upgrade or will it just sadly deteriorate? Is the Cypress, even the ST model, a better choice? Is there something out there I'm not considering? What would you recommend? Thanks for your time. P.
