what kind of bike, best fits my needs?
Hey, I need something i can do some light trail riding (no hardcore downhill, just something that can handle bumps/rocks etc..), that can be driven around town (this is where i dont think road bikes would work.. i need something that can go over curbs, lawns etc.. not just flat surfaces), but i also want something that i can use on moderate rides (ie// 10miles one way). Could i just get a mountain bike, and put slicks (is that the right term?) on it.. to make longer rides more comfortable? On that note, what size frame do i need? With my feet at a little less than shoulder width apart, and measuring tape in the middle, going up to the crotch, my measurement is 34 inches... Thanks for your help. Also, what brands are good? Im doing this on the cheap.. looking for used bikes (my price range is around $300.)
