My hybrid was recently written off because some fule pulled out on me. Result=compensation/physio. But...
I have a dilemma. Do I replace the hybrid cheaply or use an ancient MTB for commuting and baby carrying duties, or look for a do it all bike to replace either my road bike or MTB?
I'm looking for something that could take a rack and a seat tube mounted baby seat for everyday duties but be fun off road or on road (I imagine it's too much to expect both). Or maybe a geared rigid 29er would do some of all of that? And take a rack and baby seat?
Ideally I'd just have one bike to do all of these things, but hybrids are not fun, nor can they do proper mtb duty.
Suggestions within a reasonable budget would be appreciated to ease my aching brain!
