I have been thinking about getting a MTB because I want to do a lot of urban/light trail riding. I currently own a road bike which isnt too great for innercity riding. How much can cross bikes handle? small jumps/bunny hops? If I were to get an MTB it would prob be hardtail because full suspension seems a bit overkill for my purpose but I like the style of cross bikes better since theyre more road oriented in geometry.
Another question, where do yall buy your bikes? I dont think I have seen that many if any at LBS in my city.
