So I go to college every weekday, and I got £135 bursary for travel. First term I spent it on bus and was still late for most lessons, so third term I want to spend it on a bike.
I'm about 5"7', and college is about a 45min walk. I know to get a mountain bike as I can't get road bikes with £135 and I would be an idiot if I got a BMX for various reasons, so I came to ask for hints and tips on what type of bike to get e.g. what size wheels and frame, thickness of tires.
I know I should go in the shop to test it before I buy it, but I'm not going to a back alley shop again, and big name shops usually don't let you try before you buy because you have to assemble the bike or have them assemble it for a price, and I hardly have time.
>Pick related. Was thinking of saving up an extra few pounds and getting this comfy as fuck looking bike.

how do you make it past a pair of rocks like in pic? Its easy to get teh front wheel through, but I cant get that rear wheel, I either hit it straight up, or brush up on the side of the tire, crank, pedals... just about knocking me off
