Say I wanted to buy a bicycle. I just want a cheap, easy, friendly bike that I can use to get around town, so I'm not thinking super long distances or anything like that. I suspect some of you on my flist might have some suggestions as to either bikes or features that I might want to look at or consider. Since it's been approximately 15 years since I biked with any regularity, I'm all ears.
I'm especially interested in comfy seats and not spending a lot of money.
