Dawes Lightning Sport

Pros: Inexpensive, Comfortable, Perfect for beginner

Cons: Brakes, Weight

This bike for what it is (a $260 bike), is a fantiastic bike for a beginner!  I have never ridden a road bike and the only bike experience I have is from when I was a child.  About three months ago my fiance asked if we could start biking as another form of exercise.  I wasn't sure if she (or I for that matter) would stick to the sport.  I wanted to find us inexpensive bikes...

“ I have owned over 20 road bikes, several Italian brands and all three of the major US brands and this is the only bike I would buy again. It built into a 14.5 lb bike without super exotic wheels or parts.  I have riden it for almost 4 years and rebuilt it 3 times.
