I found a form using 見て, and it seemed very useful, but I could never remember it. It means something like "I will try it out" or "I will try and see", and the Japanese form is something like 自転車見て... I know this is vague, but I am also some form like this is pretty common and I can't remember what it is. Can anyone recall?

  • Not entirely sure if this is a duplicate of the "try to..." question. Are you thinking of "見てみる" (which is just a particular instance of Sawa's answer)? as in "見てみよう"/"見てみましょう"...

てみる is "try out ...".
