    BIKERS!.. Not the motor kind this time, the pedal kind...

    Do you ride for exercise, to commute, for pleasure?
    Where do you ride? off road or just mainly streets?

    What do you reccomend, Mountain or road bikes... I hear benefits for Mountain bikes for road riding, but I also hear negatives.. also that a mountain bikes for just road use is dangerous... Anybody kno?

    Used to ride for pleasure and fitness. Did some trail, but mostly street.

    My bike of choice and will be again is a hybrid.

    you don't have to disrespect or insult others simply to hold your own ground. if you do, that shows how shaky your own position is.

    You can get yourself a messenger bike. To me it is like a cross between a mountain bike and a road bike. It is almost as fast as a road bike , but has the strength of a mountain bike.

    But if you just want something FAST , super light and cooooool. You can go for a fixed gear/Urban track bike that can 'coast' . They have become really popular with all the hipsters and trendy kats.


    Anyway......both of my suggestions wont be cheap.

    Man....It's a toss between Miami (which includes a plane ticket and lodging, not even going to talk about fetes), or going to the Major Lazer concert same month.

    I ride for exercise and use a mountain bike that I ride on street and on trails. I find that mountain bikes are a little more forgiving than road bikes if the roads are not as smooth.
