Looking for a new bike but now sure what I want
Okay I have been looking at getting a bike to do over the summer instead of sitting on my computer. Right now I have no idea what I want. I have driven single speed BMX bikes when I was younger and enjoyed riding/doing tricks. I want to be able to go off road, go trailing, tricks, and use a commuter too. I was thinking about getting a single speed mountain bike but I have a couple of question. I'm welcome to any comments or flames.
What is the difference between single speed and fixed gear?
Should I buy a cheap mountain bike and just convert to single speed of fixed gear?
Should I even get a single speed or fixed geared bike?
- I'm pretty sure that I want a hard tail.
- Cheap is always good.
- Something lightweight.
