Mountains, and Roadies, and Dualies, OH My!
Well one thing is for certain. There is no shortage of bike options out there. Kind of like the toothpaste isle at Walgreens.
I thought I had a pretty good idea what I wanted. But the short amount of time I have been researching shows me there may be better options. Then there is the Time/Money conundrum.
When I have a lot of money, I don't have a lot of time. And vice versa.
Right now I have a lot of time.
I will be going to some bike shops tomorrow. And while I am chomping at the bit to get started.
I know it will be wiser to take my time.
On the other hand, there is a used but in new condition Wahoo 29er about a half hour from me at a reasonable price. I may just grab that and see if the biking plan sticks.
For myself, I am mid fifties, 5'7" 250lbs, been pretty active my whole life, and still walk a fair bit. Have state trails/roads right out the end of my driveway. Wobbling back and forth between 29ers, dualsports, and cyclocross bikes. The cyclo has a slight advantave in my mind right now as it opens up the road side a bit more. But the ability to travel and carry gear is appealing as well. Really like the looks of that Ogre! Riding from campsite to campsite up here would be a blast.
But tomorrow should help steer me a bit.
