I'm a 21 year old male, 240lbs and 5'11". I'm out of shape right now for sure.
I also lost my driver license recently for 90 days. I will be commuting to work 18 miles a day round trip.
I have a Gary Fisher "Mamba" Bike from about 8 years ago but its very heavy and I get out of breath fast.
I'd like a full suspension bike with mountainish-style tires but a front suspension would be fine.
The weight factor is huge, I'm looking for ideas of what brands to look into that are a good bang for the buck.
Budget is around $600 I'm thinking...give or take. This is how much I spend in gas in about 4 months just to get to work.
