I've come to the conclusion that impact sports are knackering my joints so going to take up cycling as a way of getting in shape and keeping the weight off.
I've got a mountain bike but it's never used,firstly you got to get it on the rack,then drive to a track and then there is all the cleaning afterwards and the drive home which is probably around 3 hours,with the wee man starting nursary in September I've got 2 hours to exercise.
So I want recommendations of a hybrid bike which I can just jump on and go on the road and tow paths etc (I'm not aerodynamic enough for a road bike!)
Questions I have are do I need v or disc brakes? Do I need front suspention? I want something thats nippy on the roads but ok on tow/canal paths,I don't intend to go offroading with it much.
My mountain bike is a trek and I saw a 7.3 fx trek which looked good but no idea if it is.
