Re: “How to Buy a Bike When You Don't Know Jack About Bikes

Lesson learned? Too confusing/frustrating/difficult to find a bike? Hopefully not. Sundays are notoriously busy for most bike shops, assuming it's when EVERYONE wants to fix/buy a bike. Try a weekday, when someone has time to consult with you. Just as one wouldn't simply walk into a car lot and buy a car without a little research, a bicycle demands the same thoughtful attention. Fit, price point, and utility all needs consideration. Craigslist is extra hassle, trading time=$$. The folks at The Spoke have always been extremely helpful without an ounce of attitude when I've wanted to fix/sell/buy a bike. Heck, they will even sell your bike on consignment! Riding a bike is a thoroughly enjoyable experience well worth any time you invest into finding the right one. Dont despair, car driver, keep your chin up and have a little patience. It's worth it!
