I just bought a cheap BMX bike for something fun to play around with on the streets. I'm about 30 minutes from the nearest trails & my only personal vehicle (hopefully only for another few weeks at this point) is a motorcycle, so I have to borrow a car to get my MTB there. The 20" bike, on the other hand, is small enough that I can strap it to the back of my motorcycle & take it anywhere local (it's only secure up to about 50mph). The BMX track is 15 minutes away, the skate park is 10 minutes away, & there are any number of ledges & staircases around town to play with (though a cop assigned to each one, it seems
However, when I get a four-wheeled vehicle in a few weeks here, it's on like Donkey Kong. It takes me 25 minutes just to get to work every day so I can deal with another 30 to the trails no problem, since it's proving to be one of my bigger passions. Plus there's another set of trails (where they held the Olympic MTBing here in 1996
) about 5 minutes from school, so I'll definitely be at the trails Tuesdays & Thursdays.
The small bike, for me, is just something to keep me entertained when I can't MTB, & so I can go to the skatepark with my friends without being a total outcast. MTBing is my true passion.
