Hello

I'm new here, and a complete bike novice. I'm looking at buying a reliable hybrid bike for my 11yo
daughter in the $400-ish price range. Most bikes I've seen feature the Shimano Revo shifters (twist-
grip). A friend tells me to avoid these like the plague as they sieze-up. Can anyone confirm this?

So far we've looked at:
- Gitane Escape;
- Malvern Star Bayside;
- Raleigh C700; and
- Giant Cypress SE and Elwood SE Any recommendations? We're in Tassie, by the way. Any advice on
brands and components would be much appreciated.

Many thanks SS

My g/f is happy with her Apollo hybrid and also the Giant "Option" hybrid (before it was nicked from
our locked garage).

P.S. I suggest you "munge" your email address if you don't want to get s***loads of spam. Pronto,
before the bots get it. Unless you really

It means changing your email address (the one that's displayed in newsgroups, anyway) so that it's
invalid - see mine above (or wherever your newsreader shows it). Make it obvious either in your
signature or the address itself how genuine repliers can reach you.

I suggest you DO IT NOW!
