I've been on the hunt for a new bicycle recently. I have a vintage Schwinn, and I kind of love it, but it needs a new tire, and is a pinch on the rusty side. So I figured I'd splurge a bit and get a new bicycle.
We have a lot of local bicycle shops, and I found the perfect one at my first stop: A pretty Electra Townie in sea green with cream tires. Then I saw the price tag: $850.00. I may have gone to three or four hundred, but almost one thousand just to tool around town seemed excessive.
Part of me thinks I should just go for it, but the practical part keeps says, "That's ridiculous." Does anyone have suggestions for good ladies' bicycles that aren't outrageously priced?
