If your set on purchasing a new bike then get what you want and realize the day will come when you drop it, if your fine with dropping a new bike then so beit. Nothing wrong with that its your choice. Just realize that you will have to grow into it. Its not too much if you can flat foot it. Also try sitting on the bike and see how far you can lean it from one side to the other and still control the weight-standing still. Great starter if you have the right stats. Speaking of which what are they?

Just being comfortable on your first bike and as a first time rider is all that matters.

STFU. seriously, get a marketing budget and go away.

Not to mention the dangerous and ridiculously bad advice you're giving!
