    Default Which bike?

    I would love a bike because now my boys are starting to ride, I would love to ride with them.
    I've seen this REID vintage looking bike near new at a good price and was thinking of buying OR should I just buy a "normal" women's bike like in the second pic?
    Advice please. Thanks.

    Houch is a good price? And what kind of riding are you planning on doing. ?

    What is Houch?

    The kids and I will be riding along bike paths down near the river or local open park reserve. Just easy riding.

    Thanks. The second example is just a made up from Google. I'm not sure if I should get the Vintage or just a normal bike.

    I have one of the vintage ones only because I don't like how far you have to lean over to reach the handle bars on the other bikes. And it looks pretty

    I have a vintage bike which I bought so I could ride with the kids. I just got mine from Kmart because I wasn't sure if I would actually use it much so didn't want to spend the $400 or so on a good vintage bike.
    I love it because it's pretty , the only thing that bothers me is the tyres are so thin. I would prefer wider tyres for better stability but that could just be me coz I'm unco.
    So my recommendation is to shop around and see if there are any vintage bikes without the super skinny tyres.
