I’m back on the need to more than just running thinking again but in a quandary about what to do and more to the point about what bike to get. A road bike is likely to be more for my money apparently where as a mountain bike seems more adventurous and could lead to duathalon perhaps. However there’s the time and what I’d expect to do when, how much time to train… Hybrid seems to be an answer but is it too much of a compromise and not very good at anything? Then there’s the money, how much to spend before you get a decent machine? There seems to be a compromise weight vs. cash.
