I have been looking to pick up a new outdoor hobby and cycling seems to be a great fit. I can work out while I have fun
I have a couple of questions
1. What type of bike should I get?
I want to be able to ride to the lake that is about 15 miles from my house and then be able to go on the dirt trails Do they make a cross between a mountain bike and a street bike. Also I would like to be able to commute with it.
I think I top out at about $500
2. What is the best security device to lock your bike up with?
I live in a college town where bikes get boosted all the time.
3. How hard is it to build a bike?
I am pretty good at turning a wrench
Is it better to build a bike and/or Cheaper?
Sorry about all the questions but I would rather ask people that love riding instead of someone trying to make a sale.
Thank you for your time.
