    It’s 5 miles a day. So 2.5 miles each way. I’d do it on a 12″ kids bike.

    And MTFU and stop lying to your mrs. Ridiculous.

    Blimey, I thought I had it rough and I’m only allowed 3 bikes! Tell her you’ve bought the DH bike 2nd hand with the money you saved not driving to work.

    You could ride 5 miles a day on the DH bike if you had to.

    Ok so I’ve got three bikes but mrs only knows I’ve got 2 at our house 1 is kept at parents place but as there moving I’m going to have to bring the other bike to our address.

    Currently have Hardtail for commuting but I’ve grown out of it and running out of gears and I really don’t want to get rid of my FS or the “hidden” DH bike.

    So was thinking for getting rid of the hardtail and commuting on the FS, anyone think of any issue with using the FS for commuting?

    You will be fine on the full sus. Just the one hidden bike makes you an amateur

    Firstly I don’t own the house we have NOT bought it together it’s hers she owns it so her house her rules (we are not married) I just live there.

    Also I want an easy life every time I make a change there’s a big F*&king row so the thought of asking for space for another bike TBH I just cannot be arsed.

    Cheers for the helpful comments though 🙂

    At least when she asks me to take her out in the summer for a bike ride I can say “sorry love not got a bike for you to ride” every cloud and all of that 😀

    Get yourself a cheap s/h pub bike for the commute, and sell it on the don’t want a good bike stolen.
