Its been about 6 years since iv ridden a bike, and yea I just want a bike that's suitable to get me round town etc. Would a BMX or a mountain bike do? I was thinking, go for BMX-small light easy to ride but no suspension/gears etc. Is suspension still a worthwhile thing to have, if all ill be doing is riding on relatively flat road all day?
thanks

Of the two I'd go for a mountain bike - a BMX isn't particularly comfortable to ride any distance and I always felt a bit of a twollock as a mid-30s man riding a kid's bike!

TBH any old bike sounds like it should do the job for tootling around town, though you definitely won't need any suspension (and cheap full sus bikes in particular are likely to be a bit naff).
