The situation is that I'm living on the side of a mountain - no, really - and I need a bike that can get me up the mountain without giving me a hernia. Of course, part of my success will be based on how I ride, but I want a bike I can really work with.
First bike is a cream beauty with six gears on the rear and two (or three) on the front.
Second choice is a sexy number with six gears on the rear.
Third is a...um... I dunno. You know those short bikes shaped kinda funky that would look really odd with a basket on it? Anyways, apparently they'll get me up the hill without quarrel.
I know it's not a lot of info, but this is all I know. Any suggestions?
