I am looking for a bike to ride mostly on paved paths but also on some dirt trails in parks, etc. Nothing extreme like downhill racing. Just biking for exercise, and something to do with the family. I work out every day but would probably only bike once a week. I would plan to haul a bike trailer with the rugrats in it. Should I go for a regular mountain bike or a hybrid bike? It seems as though a mountain bike would not be ideal for paved paths but a hybrid may not handle dirt roads and trails. Any suggestions? Also, I am 6'5". What size frame should I buy? Would it be the same size for hybrid and mountain bikes?
Any input would be appreciated.
