I have access to three different mountain bikes. Unfortunately, Two of those are 24" bikes, and the 26" one is a Walmart bike.
The 24" ones are, a Trek MT 220, which was my first "real" bike, and a Gary Fisher rst Tyro, which belongs to my brother, but he never rides. When it got to the point that I couldn't pedal without smacking my knees on my elbows riding, I got a great deal on a Next Mountain Ridge, and it's not terrible, but it's not great. What should I do? Should I just ride the Next for now, or would it be possible to make one of the others comfortable to ride? Should I just ride standing up all the time, and ride one of the better brand bikes? There is a park about 8 miles from my house, and I could probably ride there, but I'd hate to do it standing up.
