Hi All, I’m new to bikes and I am looking for my first one. The biggest question I have is should I buy a new bike or a used one. I have the means to get a new bike and I have found one I love. I can see the benefits of that but EVERYONE is telling me to get a crap used bike because I am guaranteed to drop it. Yeah that may happen but should that be enough of a reason to look past a new model. Most bikes I have looked at have a 2 year warranty and it’s easier to replace damaged parts on a current model I’m sure. My expectation is that I will keep this bike for 2 – 3 years until I can afford a really nice big full license bike. If I get a used bike just to learn on I then have to sell it and get another bike in between.... what to do? Please help.
