Bike Advice Please! Hybrid? MTB?
My previous biking experience included the inexpensive Schwinn model (please don't ask me anything about it http://ficdn.mtbr.com/images/smilies/smile5.gif though I had it for near fifteen years and now my daughter does!) around town, on simple groomed trails, and hauling my kids and now my groceries in the tag along. I have always loved biking and now have more time to bike. I am now looking to upgrade to a bike that can still do those things, but provide me with longer and more advanced trail rides yet still haul my tag along for groceries in town and allow me to bike extensively in town.
I had been looking at the Neko S 16", (which is at the TOP of my budget) but after looking around I'm unsure if a hybrid is the way to go...any advice greatly appreciated...if needed; I'm 5'8" and medium build.http://ficdn.mtbr.com/images/icons/icon5.png What type of bike (and any recommended models works too!) do you think would suit my situation best?
