So a year and a half later I stumble upon this blog... and still don't know if you bought a bike or not. You should have gone to Veloria, a blooger who lives in Boston (http://lovelybike.blogspot.co.nz/2010/10/lovely-bicycle-on-budget-vintage-vs.html) who would answer every question you have. On her blog advice, we flew to Berlin, bought two Bella Ciao bikes and for the first time had a two-week vacation without a car. The shop boxed them up and we brought them home. Loved it. OK, they are more expensive (€800 plus vacation), so follow her advice and buy a Raleigh Lady Sports. I just checked Craigslist and there is one for $230. http://sfbay.craigslist.org/nby/bid/4107873923.html. It will be gone by tomorrow, so its just for illustration.
PS: once you start riding you will love it... and you may trade boyfriend #1 in for another model.
