Ok here it goes. I have a 1 year old mtn bike sitting in my basement. Im completely car free and I'm thinking of making trips to and from the grocery store on my bike. I talked to the guy at the bike store and he has an older road bike that he would trade me for the mtn bike. The mtn bike is a giant and I just feel that if I'm really going to do this through summer and winter that I should go with the mtn. That has eyelets* for penniers*.
So do I trade the mtn for the road bike and get a free rack out of the deal or keep the mtn and just buy a rack and penniers.
I'm thinking keep the mtn bike. I can always buy some thiner* tires for it.
