If civilization and the infrastructure had collapsed what bike would be the most versatile for transportation.I'm guessing a mt. bike or self assembled hybrid of some type.

Thanks,for your reply,that is some bike ! I'm doing research for a novel and trying to keep it as realistic as possible.I ride a Trek 7000 on a paved trail and don't have any real experience with off- road bikes but think a trail bike is probably the best compromise between speed and off road riding.

I guess I'd not take hydraulic disc brakes but rahter mechanic rim brakes. They are easier to work on and the likelihood of coming across parts that can be (ab)used to replace a broken brake is higher + I gues that (with some grease on the pivots and a new cable and brake pad now and then) they should work forever (or as close that it makes no difference 'cause I'd be eaten by a wolf before that, or dead from something that can be cured easily now but is lethal in that situation)...
