Easy to maintain and fix, inexpensive compared to roadbikes, perfect for city riding....
I also have a full carbon road bike for distances and a 6 inch travel mt bike for well mt biking
Hmm, I can see that. This is my current ride:
$78 gets me a full year membership, whereby I can use the bike any time of the day for 30 mins, as often as I like. If I use it for an hour, it costs me $1.50. No storage issues in my apartment, and no worries about security in a city second only to NYC in terms of bike theft.
Plus it leaves me more money to look at DH bikes.
