I'm looking to buy a new bike that will be suitable for riding in the city (commuting from time to time) and touring on somewhat short distances (not more than 30-50 miles a day). I'm from Bulgaria (which is in Europe ) so most of the brands you're discussing here are not available in my country. My budget is also a bit tight (~$400). There are a couple of companies that make bikes in my country and they are pretty much what we have in Bulgaria except for some imported but quite expensive ones. So far that's what I've decided to buy:
Do you think it will be suitable for my needs? Also do you think it can handle dirt paths/fire trails? Thanks!
