I have a bike and I ride to work everyday. The problem is I want a cuter bike that is more fun. Right now I have a boring old mountain bike. It's served me well over the last 12+ years but I feel like it's time for a change. The only problem is can I afford (or justify) this change?
Here are the styles I would really like:
The problem is these all range from $500 to over $1000. I feel like it would be crazy for me to spend that amount of money on a bike, even though I ride to and from work 5 days a week until it's too cold to ride.
Canadian tire has this nice cruiser for $159
That's totally doable the only problem is it has no gears. I encounter a couple of hills on my way to work and this wouldn't cut it. So, do I find a new way to work so I can ride in inexpensive style? Do I fork out mega bucks just to get the bike I really want because it looks pretty but that I don't really need? Or do I suck it up and keep riding my old bike? What's a girl to do?
