    Monday I'm buying a new bike... last month my Scott Sub45 was stolen leaving me to patch up my old bike. It's very much like a spare tire and I've used it as such.
    I ride daily, either to get to work or for fun any suggestions in the $150-$270 range is welcome.


    I'm looking at the Diamondback Edgewood $269.00 at my local Aafes.

    Amazon.com: Diamondback Men's 2012 Edgewood Sport Hybrid Bike (Black): Sports & Outdoors

    http://www.diamondback.com/2012-edgewood

    I'm in the market for another Hybrid roadbike and after seeing the Edgewood in person I might take it up seeing it's in my price range.

    I was looking at the Schwinn discovery, but I can't find it in stores.

    I loved the Scott, with it's supercar handling and speed, but my lower back hated it. If given the same budget as last time I'd do it again in a heart beat.

    Not really any on my part, since I spent a whole $10 on a 10 speed at a garage sale.

    Bought a Bianchi Grizzly (used) at a local bike shop for 50$.

    You could try looking at a local bike shop, they might have some second-hand/used that sells for 150$-270$ (sometimes they sell bikes that were once rentals)

    I'll check that out, not sure if there are any bike shops in the Dc area that sell used... One way to find out.
