What do you guys think about this?

Hello all,

Would this be a good bike just to bash around, getting around the city, short commutes(10mi) possibly longer, workout machine, etc...???

Sure, it would work for your intended purpose. But I think, if that is all you intend to do you might be better served by a road or hybrid bike. But don't bash too much, that isn't going to be the most durable ride out there.

OP have you ever thought about just getting a used bike?? It would save you some money and there are always good deals for a nice bike. I know if it was me and those where the things I was doing, I would buy used. If you continue to ride more and want to do more then you can upgrade!
