Please allow me to introduce myself...
Hello everyone here at Bike Forums. How is everyone?
Anyway I'm rzm61. I come here bearing a few questions. I checked out the FAQ and I thought it might be best to ask the cats here who would know a lot more about this then I would.
Anyway, I'm a skateboarder however it might shock some of you that I have a fond respect for BMXers, along with "fruit-booters"
I call them that cause in-liners and rollerbladers doesn't sound right to me. Anyway, I've been interested in getting a BMX bike for myself to play around on every once in awhile, also I am hitting a delema that won't allow me to drive my car. So I wanna invest in a bike so I can get around town and to and from work.
A friend of mine who is a biker told me that I shouldn't get a BMX bike to come to work, I would wanna shoot myself by the time I got to the town thats right outside of my job. So anyway, I was wondering if anyone could give me some pointers as to what I should look into.
My journey to my job is about 30 minutes tops. I would say, maybe 10-15 miles from my house? That might even be a higher number then what it really is. I'm just taking a stab here at the distance. So any help would be appriciated, I plan on getting to a bike shop hopefully tomorrow to check out some bikes, talk to the guys and possibly make a purchase.
Well thanks for your time, and see you around the forum.
