I'll be heading off to college in a couple days (yikes) and I'm having trouble deciding which of my three bikes to take with me. I'm living on campus and there isn't any secure bike parking. There are only outdoor bike racks. I've got a 1990 Trek 930 mountain bike/commuter that I'll definitely be bringing. So the question is, do I bring my road bike or my bmx bike?
I live on the 4th floor of my dorm so which ever extra bike I bring, I'll be lugging it up to my room.
The bmx is a 2012 DK Helio. I just started getting into BMX and is quite fun. I could also use this bike to zip around campus since I'll be able to hop over obstacles and sidewalks and such. It is also easier to lock up, store away and there's no derailer to bend.
The road bike is a 1986 Trek Elance 400. I mainly used it for club rides and bringing it with me to college would give me something to do on the weekends. It's my go-fast bike and let's me go long distances quite quickly and efficiently. I get antsy locking it up mainly due to the Brooks saddle.
I could always do the club rides on my commuter bike but the road bike is such a joy to ride.
So which one should I take along to supplement my commuter bike? Or should I only bring my mountain bike commuter?
Any advice would greatly be appreciated!
