Thinking of starting to ride to work a few days a week depending on if I can find a safe route there. Its about 20 miles round trip and thought it would help me get used to a little distance and such.
Right now, I have a nice road bike that I would rather not commute with (will be for weekend riding and such). Thinking of getting a mountain bike with city slick tires or possibly a hybrid. Not really sure. The reason for not wanting to use the rode bike is for not wanting to use the road bike is because there are parts of the area here that you will need to use the sidewalk and some places of ramps to go up and some dont.
Opinions welcome. I would like not to too much if possible (less then $500) since I spent a lot on my road bike.
