    Peter, Paul, and Mary were clearly superior to Simon and Garfunkel.

    If all Simon and Garfunkel had ever done was "The Only Living Boy in New York," that statement would still be untrue.

    The best bike for you is the one you love to ride. Sounds like you know this, but test rides are the way to go.

    And you may look at used. Phoenix Bikes in Arlington (Barcroft Park) is awesome (their a non-profit that teach kids bike maintenance skills), and if they don't have what you need, you can swing by Ye Olde Bike Shop on the way back into DC (Lyon Park).

    I have to agree. Also, in DC Gearin' Up Bicycles has a similar program to Pheonix Bikes, they have bikes from $100 - $400 that have been fixed by their skills training students and/or volunteers. They do maintenance classes, etc.
