HI. great site. I am rapidly becoming a avid biker. with the new purchase opf a used fuji silhouette, I am now faced with changes to my rides, namely
1: I owned a cannondale H400. my favorite bike ever. It had an easier first gear for steep hills. the fuji is harder in first gear? can I swap out the gears?
2: the ride on my silhouette, is a little more cramped. is there a seat post, or handlebars, the can extend the reach a little to be more like my old cannondale?
3: I have some thin smaller tires. would some cyclocross tires be better? I do hit an occasional pothole.
Thanks! I'll be learning a lot here!
