bike for my sister


Well-Known Member
can anyone recommend a bike for my sister? she only has around $300 to spend (i know that isnt much to work with). This will be her first bike which she plans to ride a good bit on the road, while still being able to ride a mild trail from time to time...any help would be great! thanks!

craigslist or yard sales are your best bet. I saw a well protected older Naskiti (sp) at a yardsale for $50.oo, works.

I have a 2005 Specialized Rockhopper for sale in the Marketplace forum. Depending on how tall your sister is, it may be the kind of thing you're looking for - it's in excellent shape, is a real mountain bike, and is cheap.

Its a 15" frame - fits me perfectly at 5'5", 125 lbs.
I have a 2004 Trek Fuel 90 WSD, 16" frame. Used for 1 season. Definitely in your price range. I'm also 5'5" and 125 lbs. Real FS mtb.
