I'm toying with the idea of getting a bike for commuting to work (cheap and fun!). Thing is, I commute to work over the bealach na ba to Applecross (some of you may know it...) which is 2000ft ascent and 2000ft descent over a 15 mile trip on twisty single track road.
I'm looking at 125's because I've not ridden before. It's been suggested that a 4 stroke bike which is as much of an off-road bike as it is an on-road one would be best, I've been looking at Derbi's (Senda DRD 125 & Terra), though I've also been wondering if a Yamaha YBR would suffice (presuming I stay on the tarmac).
Any advice would be appreciated, even if it's to tell me that it's a ridiculous idea to use a bike to commute on such a route.
