    I suggest spending some time on Craigslist. You can pick up some great deals if you're patient. I just saw a 2012 Giant Roam 2 in near new condition for $325.00. A lot of people pay top dollar for...

    When I ride my local trails I spend the majority of my time looking a few yards ahead and not at other riders. All I care about is steering clear of "you know what". ...

    So true. Make certain you have enough top bar clearance so your "nads" won't get crushed if you have to abruptly dismount. Otherwise, your voice may permanently go up a few octaves. (Disregard this...

    I think stand over clearance is critical. That's the distance between the top bar of the bike and your nads. You need at least an inch clearance if you plan on having kids or keeping a low voice.

    As far as weight is concerned, a suspension fork weighs more than a ridged fork but it's only by a few pounds. The extra weight can be equalized by putting down the cheeseburgers and getting in...

    Really? You returned that bike for a folding bike? They don't compare. Pehaps you should buy both.

    Or, if you're going to ride a tiny bike than take a look at one of these.

    If you ride a mountain buy a mountain bike. If you ride trails buy a hybrid dual sport. If your nuts and ride like a maniac buy insurance.
