I am new to cycling . I just got my first bike an know very little about it. I was told by the saleman that it is a good starter bike, but you know saleman. My first ? is did I get crooked? The brand is Giant/Revel 2. Is this a good bike for a starter? My plan is to start riding each afternoon, my 1st goal is to get to 40 miles a week then move on up. So far I can do about 8 miles before my butt starts to hurt. I am a 66 years young and just starting a new sport, feel that I will enjoy biking a lot. Thank for any help on my new bike.
