Modify Mountain Bike for Comfort
I recently bought a Gary Fisher Mountain bike (29er) similar to this: http://cyclingspokenhere.com/itemdet...fm?LibId=48354
I don't do serious mountain biking at all. My biking is normally urban in nature around neighborhood, parks and flat trails. The more I ride the new bike the more I find that it's not comfortable for me. I wanted the mountain bike for the extra stability, durability (hopping off curbs, etc.) and the front shocks. The disk breaks are nice, too. However, I'm not wild about the lower profile which forces me to bend over more and puts a lot of pressure on my back, butt, hands and shoulders. I know that I can modify it for comfort, but I was hoping that those with experience could provide some links to products that might fill the need. Specifically, * Handle bars, * Stem, * Seat and * Smooth/Urban tires.
What products would make a slick fit. I'm kind of after clean, Euro-look, but with Cruiser comfort.
