A WOOM bike! (Read why below) If you’re worried about cost, you’ll get a good year or two on each bike before they outgrow it. These bikes NEVER go on sale so they have excellent resale value on Craigslist. You should get 70% back. Worst case, WOOM has a fantastic up-cycle program to help you get to the next sized bike.
