    Urban/Street bike

    I'm in the market for an urban/street bike. I'd like to use something other than my 29er and save that for the single track. I really have no clue where to start, but I've been looking at the Airborne Wingman.

    I'd like to keep the price in the $500-$650 range. Anyone else have any other ideas? I've really never looked for a straight up street bike before. I'm 6'1" and around 200lbs if that matters any.

    I have been eyeing this bike a lot as well. I discovered there is a guy in colorado who is active here that has one and he has made some good reviews on it. but I dont want a salesman review as his was super technical lol no offense. I am looking for a hardened riders review and what they really thik of it. I currently have a scott voltage tmo but am looking to add another to the collection. I was told bikes are all the same nowadays considering the frames are all pretty much the same but th wingman looks way different, which i like, and possibly a little stronger seeing as how the tubes arent round like most. then again a squared tube also is prone to stress cracks like round tubes.

    so i want a true opinion on one it doesnt seem there are many people on forums that ride them.
