I got a bike for xmas, but will probably end up trading it in for something else. I know next to nothing about bikes. I will be using it mainly just for transportation around boston, where there are lots of rough roads. Knowing myself, I will probably end up jumping curbs and beating it up a bit. I may even end up riding it in the mountains in the summer, but thats not all that crucial to me. My friend has one with dual shocks which I think is cool, but not necessary.
I got a trek SU100. Seems lightweight, sturdy, doesnt seem like too bad choice. I am not crazy about the silver color though. The SU 200 is blue, which I like better than what I got, but color obviously isnt the most important factor here. Seems like the only ones I really like after browsing around for a while are the higher end bikes, which are a little out of my range. So, I guess my question is, if you needed a bike for what I need it for, had about 400-600 bucks to spend, what would you go with??
ps Im 6'5" in case that makes any diff.
