Getting a new Bike?
I'm getting a new bike. I have a few questions I'd like to ask. First of all, what company makes the best bikes? I know that this is probably a lame/unanswerable question to ask (some companies make better bikes for certain purposes, some companies are better for certain things, bla bla bla), but I really want to hear the opinions of different people and I know there are probably some manufacturers I should stay away from.
Also, I do mountain biking but I ride on roads and bike trails just as frequently. When I do mountain biking, I go on some pretty rough terrain so I don't know if it'd be a good idea to get a hybrid. But I don't know how good of an idea it would be to be riding a mountain bike with full suspension when i'm trying to go fast enough on the road. Any ideas? I currently have a mountain bike that I got from toys r us when i was in high school (or maybe even middle school. I can't remember). It has full suspension but its pretty old.
Now I'm going to be going to George Mason university so I will be riding on the bike trail near DC a lot I suspect.
