    Bicycle question

    I'm looking at buying either a Hybrid or Mountain Bike. Any help or recommendations on choosing is appreciated. Budget is $1200.

    It all depends, where you going to ride. Hybrid bike has lighter frame and a narrower tire. Also has no suspension. Mountain Bike is designed fora rougher terrain.
    Hybrid is a smoother ride and faster, also sits more upright.

    I ride average 20-25 miles pretty much everyday. I have a Giant which is the #1 seller internationally and cheaper than the Trek which is #1 in America. My next ride will be a gravel bike.

    Thanks for responding. I think a Hybrid would be right for me for now. I was hoping for something that would do both but not sure it exists. I've been looking at the Trek Xcalibur, Dual Sport (H), and Giant Fathom.

    Good luck, all 3 good choices, just test ride all three to see what you like best. I don't ride for speed although if I see some fat chick or old man ahead my instincts take over to catch them and pass. I'm like I can take them or I should be able to, doesn't always work. LOL. It's great exercise, wish I would have started bike riding years ago, I use to run, but my body wore down from the pounding. I have had two knee operations, was told years ago I would have to have knee replacement. My knee never hurts anymore.

    Good luck and if you don't have a helmet or lights get them!
