Cycling Oppos, I need some advice. I have been off a bicycle for a very long time. However, having multiple vehicles down all at the same time has made me realize I need to get back on the saddle. I also realized that there’s a mountain bike trail through a mountain preserve that I can take from my house to my work. The trail is moderate, and around five miles in length with only about a 300' elevation change. After some research I think I want to go with a 17-18" hardtail frame with 29" wheels and mechanical disc brakes. I know nothing about bike brands anymore. Any advice you can give is welcomed.
My view on the way to work for your time.
