I got my Kona Smoke today! First bike since I was a kid. I decided on a rigid fork because I don't want to hassle with any parts I can live without. One less thing to worry about breaking.
However, what are some things I can do to smooth out my ride without suspension? Hitting even little cracks in the pavement was very jarring. I don't know what psi the tires were at, but they are as hard as rocks. LBS was the one who filled them up, told me they should be between 65 and 75psi. I figure they are the experts, but I wonder if the tire pressure should be lowered any, from what it is now. OR maybe I've just gone soft from not riding in so many years. My tush still hurts and I was only on the bike for an hour today! It hurt less on my second riding attempt, but only because I went numb after 30 seconds.
Oh, the tires are 700c x 47.
Other than that, it's great
