Is this a good traveling bike?
This might be stupid but I currently ride around on a suspension mountain bike and go travel around 16 miles every other day. The majority of the time I am standing up so this jump bike looks quite good for me because I could spend some time learning and performing some jumps. I'm just wondering if this bike is built for 16 mile journeys and mountain biking or if it is really only intended as stunt/jump bike.

In my tested opinion, because of the single gear *ratio* this heavy bike with wide, californian style handlebars, is only fun downhill (including the slightest downhill gradient). Uphill or flat is hard work to get up to speed to perform even a small bunny hop off a kerb. But downhill with the low rider position is a blast due to the weight. 1 mile on flat is exhausting (unless there is a bit of wind to push you).
