I’m not sure if I’d prefer a longboard or a “mini” board. In suburban Pittsburgh, there’s a few parks but almost no bike paths, often no sidewalks, often shoulders on the roads (but some marble/debris), 35 MPH speed limit roads. Would be cool if someone could weigh in on my concerns!
•Fast/able to go on the street with suburban traffic
•More shock/bump absorption
•larger size cumbersome to take on bus/subway (car?)
•Unable to take on a plane?
•faster speed more dangerous
•Can take with you on a flight?
•Easy to take on transportation or not take up space at a restaurant
•easy to carry or put on a backpack
•Less of a “lifestyle statement”
•Speeds best for using on the sidewalk?
•Feel every crack and block of the riding surface
•riding position makes ankles sore faster, so you don’t want to go far even in the best of bike path conditions (?)
