I have a question. Next Sunday is a NYC ride with some other bikers. They do this annually and around 30 plus bikers show up and three or four ride leaders lead the ride. I am looking forward to this ride!
But my question.... I am not sure what bike to take. My road bike or my commuter bike.
My road bike: I have ridden it a lot. First bike I bought and know the ins and outs of it. I love it.
My commuter: Is a mtn bike modified into a commuter. Have only ridden about 5 miles on it. It is heaviet duty then the road bike.
Now... my thinking:
I dont want to break a spoke with my road bike in NYC. I am a heavy guy.
A lot of stopping on this ride.
My mtn bike might be able ot take the bumps and cracks better.
Since it is not a fast ride, I was thinking maybe mtn bike but the one thing that concerns me is that it is a new bike and I havent ridden it much. Just turned it into a commuter.
