Default !!! Suggestion please !!!

I am 25 years old Male with 6 feet height. I am looking for a stylish
bicycle for fun. I am just going to drive it 2-3 miles a week. Can
someone let me know the 'size' which I should be buying as I am getting
a lot of deals online but not sure which one to go for.

TIA,
San

Well I wish it was that easy. But we don't know what your actual body size
is.
Are your legs longer than normal, shorter, average? Inseam length, and or
standover height? Do you have a long or short or normal torso?
Do you have long or short or normal length arms? What about your shoulder
width (translates to handlebar width)?
Do you have any problems with flexibility, such as your neck? how about
back or lower back problems?
What is your fitness level, are you active, inactive, overweight, out of
shape?
Then what type of riding are you wanting to do? Street or road riding?
Touring, camping? Off road riding, single track, trails, downhill, BMX,
freestyle?
or are you doing it for fitness, maybe bike paths or trails which are paved
or hard pack for example?
Stylish could mean a lot of different things to different people. For
example, I really like the Eddie Merckx AXM. Others like custom chopper
style bikes, others like recumbent bicycles, some even go for the really
down low trikes too.
Your best bet is to check out your local bike shops, get sized up better,
test ride some bikes, get a bit more information about what it is you are
looking for or what you want to do.
Buying off the internet looks great, but all those bikes come with caveats,
such as who is going to properly assemble it for you, as they usually come
in OEM boxes with no instructions on how to put it together, adjust or set
it tup. Plus those good deals on the internet may not really be a good deal
after all, if you get junk instead.
So one usually needs a good deal of knowledge to buy off the internet.

If you're only doing 2 to 3 miles a week the most important factors will
undoubtedly be price and overall appeal.
