this week i get the new bike i ordered off ebay. a surly long haul trucker. i'm definitely a high end clydesdale and it has 36 spoke wheels; i'm not sure if they'll last.
i've been riding my diamondback sherwood for a ten years on and off and lately i've ridden it a lot. its really too small for me. i got some new wheels for it because they other ones popped spokes and and the wheels bent. also, i live in east tennessee where there are hills and then more hills. i'm working in indiana right now and i brought my bike and man i sure do love the flat rides.
1. any words of advice for someone starting out anew? when i say "anew" i mean i am going to try to ride my bicycle everywhere i can. 2. also, i am afraid that i might not be able to bend over for the new handlebars like i used to when i was young. i like the hybrid's handlebar gear shifting now. any thoughts on that? 3. anybody know of any good raingear for big fellas?
