I am in my late 50's, one of the walking bellies, and would like to venture into trail bikes. I know not anything about this. I was hoping for anyone's opinion on a couple of things
1. The price of a used bike is very attractive, but is it safe to go that route if, like me, mechanical aptitude is not part of the package?
2. I hope to do fire roads, moderate trails and hills, and the like, with nothing extreme. I want to get a bike that I will not wind up replacing after a few months, either because it is not good enough quality or because it could not handle use. I am just under 6' and around 200 pounds. Anyone willing to direct me to a specific make and model?
