I am currently riding a Giant boulder SE with 1.5 slicks and front suspension which is annoying but I am looking to upgrade. I will probably buy used but can't really decide on a type first.
I am starting to ride longer distances and may consider a used road bike but the problem with that is I tend to hop curbs to dodge idiots and in general to get around. I am trying to stop doing this and strictly ride on the roads because the sidewalks are freaking dangerous.
I ride about 100 miles a week on my giant and considering I am a bigger guy trying to lose weight(5'6" 190) the bike is pretty uncomfortable(hand/feet numbness) and heavy.
Should I change my habits and look into a roadie,buy a light MTB and put slicks on it, or go into a hybrid bike?
Keeping in mind I am on a pretty tight budget so i'll be scouring craigslist.
