Thinking of buying a bike, but not sure what type.

    Back when I was a pre and young adult I had a Schwinn 10 speed "English" racer, yes I am old. Loved it, it was so well built compared to my previous bike. A few years later I purchased another Schwinn bike but I never road it, eventually I sold it to a friend.

    Typing this question I think I've answered it already. My best buy would be one of those mountain bikes wouldn't it? BLAH, well the good thing is it will go with my Jeep better. ;)

    I'm sure there are better brands than Schwinn, but are they a better value? What brand would be the best bang for my buck? (And model?)

    You refer to $900 as not too expensive. Well I, like Tony, am old and the bikes I bought my kids were under $150 and I know prices are higher now but that seems pretty high for a simple bike.
