I don't own a bike, and actually haven't ridden a bike in well over 4 years... but I've done an aweful lot of thinking about them lately. I'm not sure if I want/need a road bike, or a mountain one... My riding adventures will be mostly road related, but I might occassionally find myself off-road. Anybody have recommendations as to what to buy?!? Price ranges?!? Anything useful?!? (I'll keep looking around on the forum for info also. It's all very interesting to me.)
If the whole bike thing pans out, I'm also considering selling my car and just using my bike all the time, as right now my car sits in a parking lot for over two months un-used (while I continue to make payments on it = ********!), while I travel all over the country for work. That said, whatever I get will have to be comfortable for rides of upwards of 60 to 100 miles at a time for my commutes during the week while I'm home.
Ideas are good... Sweet site!
