I've been thinking about this ever since I'm not going to ride my 7.5FX until at least the frost heaves flatten out and the craters get filled. But a few weeks ago a guy came into the lbs with a mt bike with studs on the tires and I said, yeah, I could do that. Now I'm tired of looking at specs on manufacturers sites. And I really don't need anything that'll jump stumps, climb rocks or any of that stuff. Just a fat tired bike that I can ride when it's crappy out, late fall / early spring, and on the rail trails here which can be like quicksand.
Any suggestions for a basic Mt type bike?
