I am looking for a bike, $150 or less. I don't know what exactly to look for in a mountain bike. I'll be using it for leisure and for exercise, I would like a bike with resistance levels. How tall of a bike should I get for my 5'3 height? Where is a good place to see a selection of reasonably priced mountain bikes? Big 5? Walmart?

    I would avoid the drop bar "women's" style mountain bike and get a regular mountain bike. The full suspension bikes have a dropped frame and are easier on rough surfaces.

    Walmart and Target are good sources.

    If you can help it, don't buy a cheap one from a department store.
    The difference between a 100.00 and 400.00 bike is immeasurable.
    The quality bike will be a much better ride, safer, and in the long run, worth the money.
    I spent almost 1000.00 for mine but that isn't necessary.
    Remember the lighter the bike ($), the heavier the lock you'll need.

    walmart, get one that says rust proof. the sell one called the(Skyliner). its more of a cruiser and more comfortable than a mountain bike. Has front shocks and 15 speed. wide tires and stainless and alum. parts so it wont rust. about that price..mountain bike not that comfortable.

    Don't buy a full suspension bike they eat up too much energy. Do not buy a bike from Walmart or any of the big box stores. Spent a little more and you can get a good bike from Forge.
