I am old fat dude looking for a mtn bike style bike to ride on mostly pavement with some light off-road trail riding with my kid. Prefer a more upright riding position than a racing position. I'll take the least expensive bike that will meet my needs. No luck finding anything used around my area lately.
Since I'm old and no fun anymore, I do not care for getting muddy, dirty, etc. Is there any mtn bikes that take a full coverage set of fenders? Would this require a certain type of front fork?
To be even more uncool, I would like a rear rack. I prefer the racks that are NOT mounted on the seatpost. So, fenders and rear rack co-existing at the same time.
Does such a bike exist?
