Hybrid purchase advice for virtual beginner
I'm looking to get back to bike riding after a lapse of about 25 years! I want a Hybrid bike with mudguards and rear rack as I plan to mostly use the bike for getting fit, shopping, etc on roads/park.
I'm trying to decide between four bikes:
Halfords Crossfire 1
Halfords Crossfire 2
Decathlon B'Twin NeWork 5
Ridgeback Meteor Mens Hybrid Bike
The Ridgeback Meteor is one that I'm tempted to purchase but I'm very confused as to quality of components used and reliabilty - it seems good on paper byt my knowledge is basic. Most of these four seem to get good reviews but peoples greater experience or knowledge of these would be appreciated.
