I would probably find a bike that is more practical for your riding and also not jump curbs. Curb jumping is not recommended on any bike and you should take a lane anyway or ride extra slow on the sidewalk and be careful I guess (but that is boring). Mountain bikes are not necessarily more durable or anything like that, maybe potentially some are but really they are designed for a specific purpose and if I am not going to be using it for that purpose I shouldn't get that bike.

I can likely get a better hybrid with better parts since I am saving money but not going with a suspension fork, I will also save weight and get rid of an item I do not need. Suspension is really handy for off road riding or on a really heavy bike going at higher speeds (like my R+M Supercharger 2) but on the road not so much as you lose more energy bobbing up and down instead of going forward.
