Bike decent for commuting - Your thoughts and recommendations??!!
I ride fairly regularly now on the road. Just did my first century last week.
I now live 7 miles from work.
I don't want to use my road bike for daily abuse/commute.
I have thought about getting an old road bike to play with, but
I found a 06 Diamondback Sorrento MTB for $10 at a garage sell with a broken derailer.
For $25 I fixed it.
Kinda above a Wal-Mart bike, but not up to bike store level.
Would a bike with shocks be frustrating to commute with as I assume it takes a lot of the power to the shock and not the road?
I will change the tires to non-studded ones.
Should I change the Handlebars as well.
Thought about just selling it and making a small profit to get another roady.
Your thoughts and recommendations??!!
