Hey guys,

I'm a total novice here looking to pick up a lightweight used bike for city riding for under $150.
However, I have no idea what brands to shoot for. I know Raleigh's a good-quality brand, and supercycles are generally heavy department-store bikes. Short of that I'm clueless.

Any help would be appreciated!

And another thing - what brands should I avoid? I've been told not to bother with department store bikes, but I'm not even sure what department store brands are other than Supercycle/CCM/Triumph.

At that point your getting pretty much the same quality which is all heavy and crappy especially new.
Brands really do not matter at that price point just get a bike that works and is comfortable.

Getting a used $400 bike for $150 is a better bet than a new $120 bike plus tax..
