The vintage looking red one! But only as long as you don't have lots of hills where you live- I find upright bikes are harder to ride up hills. They are also great for looking around whilst you ride.

Yes the tyres on the vintage don't provide much cushioning unfortunately.

I had new wide tyres fitted to my upright bike. They weren't cheap but they were worth it for comfort!

My recommendation: don't buy a bike from Kmart they are total rubbish or a really old vintage bike - they will both weigh a ton and you'll have a harder time riding. Buy a cheap second hand alloy road bike from bikeexchange.com.au where you can usually find something small (women's sizes are usually S or XS depending on your height for $100-200. The difference in weight and how it rides will be very very noticeable.

Oh and don't let any bike shops sell you a hybrid or mountain bike. There's no reason at all to lug front fork suspension around town, you'll never need it, and it's heavy.

Thanks for the thread OP!
I'm looking to buy a bike too but the ones that are a bit lighter are all close to $500.. I was hoping to get one around $350 or so.
Rebel has some if you search online, there's some vintage and sporty styles

Mountain Bikes are annoying for cruising around though as the smaller wheels mean you need to pedal more.
