Hello I am looking at getting an inexpensive bike. I'm looking at a Huffy Rock Creek for $99. Or, a Mongoose Ledge 2.1 for $119. I will mainly use it to ride to work 2.5 miles each way on pavement. However, if I can find some trails, I would like to try them as well. Both bikes have a suspension on the front and back. They are sold through WalMart.

Well, I decided to get the Mongoose. The Huffy was just below my weight in capacity (200). I read of a 240lb person who had good results with the Mongoose. I just got it and haven't had a chance to ride it yet. I've locked it up outside for now. Hopefully, it won't rain today. How do these bikes handle rain? I'm assuming they can handle a little mud and puddles? Any tips for this bike?
