Default Re: Bike best suited for build?

Yes, mountain bikes have strong brakes, but they usually steer quicker, which makes them twitchy at 20mph.
A beach cruiser will ride smoother (on the street) and and they look more like an antique motorcycle than a mountain bike. You can add a BMX caliper brake to the front of most beach cruisers.
