Sorry for the super long message that WAS here. I shortened it.
I've got a VRX 300 full suspension mountain bike that I bought used about 3 years ago. <snip> I want a bike that I can use for exercise as well as some suburb commuting, and I don't know if this is the right bike. I'm a complete newbie <snip>. I recently bought thinner, non-knobby tires so that it'd be easier to ride on the roads. <snip> I am going to get my chain fixed - hopefully I can read up on it and do it myself.
<snip> What kind of bike would be better suited for commuting/exercising - I'm guessing something that doesn't have front shocks and preferably a bike made of steel so that the ride is a bit smoother. Are there any decent LSBs in the Chicago NW suburbs? <snip>
