Names Miles ^_^ 20 Years old from Flatlands of Saskatchewan Canada.
I am currently looking into getting myself a bike to keep me entertained for the summer, for cheaper commutes to and from work, and for fun in the prairies.
Im looking for the best section for me to go to regarding Freestyle Mountain Bikes. (seen BMX say dirt, but I'm sure theres a difference between the two in lots of ways then street and dirt.)
So as in hitting dirt jumps and things like that.
a little background, I'm a Amateur sponsored Snowboarder and I participated in Provincial Skydiving in the past. thats the most interesting part of my background. Would love to get to know more people on here that share the interest in biking.
If anyone can point me in the right direction to where I should go for more info, I'd greatly appreciate it! (:
Current bike: None (have my eyes on one in the shop, or else gonna order part for part through the dealer here in the city.)
Hi Miles, I have a friend that has a specialized p series bike. It seems like he likes it for street riding as well as bmx type stuff (that's how they advertise the p series too). If you will be commuting with it very much you should for sure check out the commuting forum. There are a lot of folks there with really good ideas about how to have a commuter that is nice but that you don't have to worry about something happening to it (theft, scratches, road salt etc). They have helped me out a ton. I ended up converting a cromo frame mtb from 1991 into a pretty nice commuter that I don't have to worry about as much. It can help keep your other bike(S) nice!
As for the Commuting part, My work isn't that far away, and the most in city riding I'd be doing to work is a few blocks then it leads to a dirt trail anyways where people work on small bike features like jumps. Then besides that I'd probably ride the trails around the city to reach the Dirt park that is near our airport on the other side of the city. I will definitely look at the Commuting forums though!
