Okay here's my dilemma. I am a 15 year old girl. 5'4 and 124 lbs. I'm not fat but defiantly not fit. So I would like to get some exercise. I'm not a big fan of walking or running in my neighborhood, but I love bike-riding. I only have $120 to spend on a bike (maybe $150 if I stretch it but no more than that). There are virtually no yard sales in my area so I can't buy one from there. I used to have a NEXT mtb a few years ago and that was good enough for me. I'm thinking about buying one from walmart but I know a lot of people say that's a bad idea. but I don't need anything fancy just something that will be good for riding around my neighborhood or at the park. Also my parent's are on a really tight budget so they can't help me out. Any ideas on what bike I should get? Remember I only have $120-150.
