Hi people, nice to meet you all, this is my first post.
I am thinking about buying a bike for commuting to work, getting around the town, and doing some bike trail riding as well. I have researched this forum, and found out that a hybrid bike seems to fit my usage the best.
However, a friend of mine suggested that why don't I buy a mountain bike and then change the tires to the ones used by a hybrid bike. After all, there are a lot more selections for mountain bikes than there are for hybrid bikes, especially within my budget, which is 500 CAN (about 380 US).
So I am just wondering what are people's thoughts on that? Thanks a lot for your help.
