I am here to learn how to find a good cheap "mountain bike like" comuter bike for a short ride to work. I once fancied myslef a mountain biker. But pretty nuch just drove around with my Rockhopper on the rack of my Pathfinder. I gave the bike to friend a few years ago in exchange for a 36' TV.
I am bound and determined to find a reliable (yet stylish) commuter for a hundred fifty bucks or less.
The "real" bikers likely hate me.

how far are you going ?
Are there any hills on your commute route?
What kind of roads?
Will you be carrying anything on the bike - like panniers with clothes, laptop, lunch?
Will you be riding in the dark - night or early morning?

I'm more comfortable commuting on my road bike than on my mtn bike even though it has skinny, slick tires.
I'm sure others will disagree.
