Advice on buying new bike?
I am looking to buy a bike to go to work but I know nothing about bikes at all. The only bikes I've had are the cheap 60$ ones from Walmart as a kid that always got stolen. The path to work is about 5 miles flat land so I dont think I need anything fancy. Is there anything I'm suppose to look for when buying a bike? I'm not sure I even know how to ride a real ones since I've never had a bike that had different gears on it.
Would I be missing something if I just bought a generic walmart bike or do I really need to get an expensive one? Are there certain features I should be looking at? Are there online vendors I should buy from? If anypony has any advice I'd appreciate it.
