Hey guys, this is my first post here and I'm pretty new. I sold my some-what BMX bike when I was 16 because I had received my permit. Wrong decision there because I've always loved to ride. To the point. I'm 19 now and looking for ways to save money for myself and I realized how much I spend on gas driving to both my jobs. What better way than to completely eliminate gas fees from my budget, and become a healthier being while I'm at it? The distance is something I could easily handle on a bicycle which is why I'm considering buying one. But what kind? I've google'd key terms, etc. and I've been given vague responses. Simply put my one job is ~1 mile from my house, and my 2nd is maybe ~2.5-3 miles. I'd also like to ride a bike leisurely on my days off (which have become scarce), or simply when I'm not working. I've tried looking through craigslist for something not too expensive, but the key words I've been searching seem to point me in the wrong direction. Are there any brands I should be looking for specifically for (from google) road riding? I'm no professional so Top of the line is not a priority. Thanks! EDIT: I'm also looking into the 'rules and regulations' spiel of what to be mindful of while I'm commuting, sharing the road w/ motorists. Really I'm a complete noob about all of this, My apologies lol.
