For our second episode, it’s just Pete and Eric. We start out discussing Eric’s high-octane choice of first bike, which leads us to examine what makes a suitable first bike for new riders or those returning to bikes. After discussing general features and characteristics, we go on to name names, listing the specific models that we’d recommend. Since we’re still finding our groove, please feel free to come back after listening and leave us a comment about how you like the new podcast and what bike-related topics you’d like to see us cover in the future. Also, please rate and review us on iTunes. False Neutral – “What would be a good first bike?” All the above images are manufacturers’ press photos.
