Fuji & Marin have some options

Take a look at the Fuji Absolute or the Marin Fairfax. Both are decent hybrids from respectable brands for less than $450.

Terry Symmetry or Trey?

I'm going to look at a bike this evening that is listed as a "Terry 21 speed bicycle" for $25. It looks to be in good shape and if it's really a Terry Symmetry, it's a steal at $25. However, the...
