First, let me say that over the last 9 months I went from going out of the Clydes club to now being back into the Clydes club, but back on the bike today and started running again last week, so hopefully things will start going the right way!
My question is: Is it easier to convert a mountain bike into more of a commuter/easy trail bike or is that more headache than it is worth? I have a couple of dedicated road bikes, but sometimes just want to hop on a bike after work for a few miles on the streets or paved trails. I know there are some hybrid bikes out there but can I change out the tires/handlebars on my mountain bike to achieve the same thing or do those bikes actually have a different geometry? Thanks for any suggestions.
