I suggest that you just get on a bike and ride. Borrow a friend's bike. Get a cheap used bike at one of the great used cycle shops around. You could even go to the Spokeland Co-op and get trained on how to build your own bike from the used parts they stock. Once you are on a bike, forget about what's cool or who looks tribal. Just enjoy riding around, smelling the smells, run errands or just get some exercise. After riding a bit you'll have a better idea on what kind of bike you really want. Fix up the one you already have or get one of the ones you looked at at Manifesto. Don't let you decision making prevent you from riding now. In fact, you could get a bike today and then enjoy Bike to Work Day on Thursday. Good luck!
