How many of you ride MTB's on the road exclusively? I have never owned a road bike. I have looked at the BD road bikes (another thread) and am considering one of those
I have an old, circa 1994, mongoose zero-g mtb that is still in pretty good shape (LX derailers, XT rapid fire shifters and V brakes).
These are my thoughts on possible options:
1. replace the worn out maintou 4 forks (stacked elastomers) and crank set and get some slicks for riding on the road, and maybe some bend bars to keep me a lil more upright (shoulder consideration after surgery #3 overall)
2. Conisdering a 29er with front suspension. From what I have read some bigger fellas prefer the 29er to a std 26"
most of my riding would be road with the OCCASIONAL trail ride or single track thrown in
good forks and cranks will be less that an entry level 29er...and it is hard to find supension forks that take v brakes..any help or suggestions would be appreciated
