My Problem

Finally the weather is getting better, but it's getting harder for me to decide which bike to ride. The thing is that I have 2 bikes, MTB and a road bike. I really enjoy riding both of them. However it takes about 10 minutes for me to decide what I want to go with today. Seems like I want to ride both at the same time Does anyone else who has two different bikes have same problem? You are welcome to share your experience even if that kind of dilemma happened to you only once. How do you people decide? Itís soooooo hard! Itís like a drug! (Not that I tried any)

I have been faced with such a quandry before. I do have it a little easier in that I live right up against the trailhead so if I really want to go road riding but feel like getting in a little trailtime, I can just pop out the MTB real quick for a few miles of looping singletrack and then head home to grab my roadbike for a few hours of road riding.

I know exactly what you mean. Lately I have been riding with someone that only has a mtb. Therefore I am usually on my mtb. I started bringing my road bike to work and started riding that at lunch. I love them both! I hope they don't find out about each other!

Khuon,
Iím almost done with school, so with more time on my hands I will try to ride both bikes. Maybe MTB first and then relax on my roady, or maybe Iíll do some racing and then wrap it up with some relaxing trails.

Jeepbikerun,
It has been raining for a while here in the NY, so I was riding my MTB for last couple of days. I still hate the idea of getting my clean road bike dirty, even if itís on the road. I do however love to get in mud holes on my MTB.

Since I keep one bike at the office and four at home, I know what you're talking about! I always ride my red-white-and-blue Schwinn mountain bike on national holidays, and I use the Bianchi only in fair weather, on good roads, when I do not have to carry anything. Where security may be an issue, I use the Peugeot UO-8, which is by far my least valuable steed.
