With them being so expensive I want to be sure to buy one I love that will suit my needs and last years. When I was a kid my friends and I used to bike all over our little town on mountain bikes, and I really loved it. Now over a decade has passed since I've even owned a bike and I'm hoping to get fit again.

Bike would mostly be used on pavement and some concrete sidewalks, but I live in the mountains so flat roads are a rarity. Really hoping to bike to work when it warms up some, and there will be some very steep roads in doing so. There may be times when I'll want to bike on dirt roads or even in the grass some, though I remember bikes not working so well on grass as a kid. Please help, I'm looking to spend $500-$1000 usd

I'll be monitoring this thread since I'm in a similar situation

>Used to bike every fucking where as a kid
>Now I'm 30 and want to start biking again because I have shit knees and running isn't really an option
>Live in New Orleans where people though it was a good idea to put pavement over swamps
>Pot holes and cracked streets everywhere
>Been telling my wife I wanted to get into biking for like 6 months, but I'm lazy as shit so I just bike at the gym
>Wife gets me a bike for Christmas
>Turns out she got me a fucking cruiser from Walmart that is slow as fuck, not built for shitty streets, and can't even change gears
>Been riding that shit since Christmas day just so she doesn't feel like an idiot for getting me the wrong bike


I've honestly been thinking about just getting a cheap mountain bike from Walmart for like 150 tops. But whatever you do, DON'T get a cruiser. That shit is meant for slow rides through a flat park.

Get a cyclocross bike then, a road bike won't handle the offroad well and a mountain bike will slow you down loads on the hills

I've never heard of the n board before

This. Cross bikes are all the rage atm and for good reason.
Fast, comfortable, and handles well on all the ground you talked about.
Designed to get banged about so will last you time too.
