    Which transport do you like better?
    Personally I would pick Skateboard cause it would be more portable but Bike is better for exercise.


    I might be getting one of them later in the year.

    Bike is a superior method of transport in every conceivable way.

    However you could say that the skateboard is a better form of recreation if you were that way inclined.

    I dislike people on bikes more when I'm driving on the road. I dislike people on skateboards more on a school campus.

    Also the most superior form of transport is Segway. If its good enough for Gob its good enough for me

    Well, being Dutch it would pretty much be sacrilege to prefer anything over a bike really :p 

    Anyway, a bike is definately the superior method of transportation, while skateboarding can be more fun (depending on the terrain).

    Bicycle > skateboard

    I got my road bike about ten years ago and just keep getting more and more into cycling. I use it for going just about everywhere.

    Skateboarding looks cool, but is limited to flat, gravel free pavement; something that is hard to come by in Calgary 8 months of the year, so I pick bike.

    For me, a bike is tons better. It's the only way I can get around in China, other than paying for a bus or cab.

    Bike for transportation. Skateboard for fun.

    Both destroy me though. I broke both of my ankles when I was 19. Bikes turn them into Jello if I ride a long time and I no longer have the ankle flexability to accuratley do anything with a Skateboard.

    I don't know how the bikes over there in the UK are but it looks ok I on the other hand always go with a mongoose I have 24' and I am 5'5 I also have a 18' for bmx.

    If you want you should go with a smaller one, unless you plan to grow into it or something.
