off with the knobbies...........
Kind of sad about it actually, but I've taken the knobbies off my mtn bike and put on some "dual purpose" tires. Guess I was always more of a trail rider than mtn biker, as I never really got off on log crossings, jumps, and the like, which most trails built in this area seem to be based on. Just used to like to spend hours on trails back east riding thru the woods, and the only park here with lengthy trails which weren't too technical, was closed due to it being too expensive for the city to keep up. So, the mtn bike has now become my urban bike-but it's still fun riding up or down curbs and steps, who knows, maybe I'll progress into a decent "urban" rider, but it seems my mtn biking craze has ended. Guess when one door closes, another opens, so urban riding, here I come!
Still have the road bike, and enjoy it, but just something about my old trusty GT that beckons me. So better urban than not using it at all.
