I had not ridden my MTB for quite some time. Been communting on the Puch until the brake pad fell of (another thread). I rode the MTB to work and I liked it. I had convinced myself I preferred the Puch for the commute but by riding the MTB I was able to tell that I actually like it better, I just don't like the fork or the pedals or the fact the front shifter is broken. I did discover after giving the Puch few months I did not like it all that much, been thinking about building a Soma Double cross up as a commuter - had already dismissed the MTB, but by revisiting the Gary Fischer I think all I need is to change a few things. So I will swap the pedas off the Puch, work on the shifter (I fixed it once before) and look for a new fork, basically remove the shock which I never liked on the road.
Any suggestions for a fixed fork? Would like one that will give me some flex like a nice steel fork with some rake. Maybe a CF fork might be nice and cut out a few lbs. This may be a much better fix!
Besides the GF is the only one of my bikes can ride hands free
