....a few comments about bicycles from prepper "Banjo""Lastly, if you have to visit one bike site online, check out Sheldon Brown's site. Sheldon has passed and will be missed, but his bike shop has kept his work online because it's so helpful, friendly, and comprehensive. In fact it can be almost overwhelming so the other resources I recommend are videos on YouTube, and classes, generally free, held by your local bike shop or bike club.Short and sweet:* Bikes have moved armies, officially and un-officially. They can move you.* 26" wheels, with Schrader valves, by far the most common in the US; that's desirable.* Get an older mountain bike, no suspension, Cro-Moly frame, stainless steel spokes.* Learn to use Slime* You can build a fine stable of bikes from thrift, garage, and church sales.* Stock up on consumables, like tubes and tires.* There are a few things you always buy new. Bike helmets are one of them.* Learn more from Sheldon Brown, YouTube, local shops, clubs, and groups.Good luck to everybody!6Tex
