A friend and I drove to a decent-sized town yesterday (Lebanon, Ohio for those who know it.) And we rode around. I never knew "Urban" riding could be so much fun! It was such a change of pace from our local XC trails, and now I am addicted to 5 foot drop offs, narrow concrete walls that are 10 feet tall, and staircases. I am going to buy some type of Urban Hardtail soon and ride it just about EVERY DAY! Road biking and XC riding, you may have just lost me!
