Too nice to ride in the city?
A while back my MTB buddy switched over to single speed road bike. He managed to convince me too so I picked up a BD Dawes SST Al. I love it, tool around on the weekend for fun but can't bring myself to lock it up in Boston. Work has a nice bike cage but outside the liquor store/market/bar is what worries me.
Got some used wheels and slicks for my personalized(literally has my name painted on, thank the parents back in my teenage years) 1995 Gary Fisher Tassajara MTB and now thinking about single speeding it. I like the wide tires for crappy city roads. Problem is, it is bright red, in as-new condition, and seems WAY to flashy for urban use. So far my best attempts to ugly it involve some plastic wrap and duct tape. Not fooling anyone. Given I have had it for almost 20 yrs I am quite attached, not sure I can Krylon it to death.
(note, not mine but basically identical)
Should I get a third lockup bike and hope my wife doesn't kill me?
Should i just ugly the Gary Fisher (and get a sweet 29er if I ever want a flashy MTB)?
Should I just stop whining about my lame first world problems? :eek:
(PS, to => too)
