So the other day I took my Sedona in because the handle bars kept rotating no matter how much i tightened them down. Secretly I was praying they would tell me it would cost more to fix than the bike was worth so I could justify to my wife I needed a real road bike. But anyways, while they had my bike I decided to grab my Gary Fisher/franken bike and try out a trail the local mtn bike guys recently created.
HOLY CRAP I'M IN LOVE!!! It's not near as fast as riding on the road but wow the technical skill and balance you have to have is amazing. I must of fallen 4 times, went head first into some bushes, bent my seat post, tore my ear phones apart and ripped a hole in one of my t-shirts and destoryed my rear tire.
I went back to my local shop with dirt all over my clothes, a grin the size of texas and eyes as big as alaska as I drooled over their selection of Giant 29ers like a kid in a candy shop. I still want a road bike because I feel like I will enjoy my 30 plus mile rides more on one vs my Sedona but Papa want's a 29er too!
Those who ride mountain bike trails, what type of bike do you ride and what do you like? I'm defiantntly going to pick up some OT at work so I can get a 29er and a road bike.
