I was wondering what would be a better choice for a commuting bike?
Ive ridin a Diamondback Hybrid Bike for a 7.5 mile uphill ride and just recently moved to Nevada and was in search for a new bike. I have had my eye on road bikes but just uncertain if I am up to par to ride such an intense looking bicycle. My current job is only 4.5 miles away, not much hills to it either, but was wondering which would be better. A hybrid or road bicycle?
I hope someone can answer some of my concerns.
Also, Ive been more exposed to the rottor and pad brakes and was unsure whether to settle for the flat BMX looking brakes.
What type of bike would be a good fit for a male, 5'9", 205 lb medium-large build looking to lose weight about another 25 lbs, lost 60 already doing cardio like Muay Thai and Kick Boxing.
Hopefully someone can answer my questions!
Thanks in advance!
