You're not asking about the "right bike" but I'd now say that lighter is more playful. (Mine is heavier and more road-worthy.) I also vote for drop-ability. I generally like bikes that I don't have to worry about.

But my main vote is "try it, you'll like it".
That's something else that I'm trying to keep in mind as well; riding something that is a little bit lighter and don't have to worry too much about.

Definitely wanting to try it, and I'm sure I'm going to like it.
