Hi All, I'm brand new to the biking scene,but l'm thinking of riding to Lhasa,(already in S.W. China. Anybody any hints clues what to look for in buying a bike?Given that nearly all of the trip will be mountainous what sort of bike would people recomend l get?
I really don't expect the shops in China to be that helpful (though l may yet be pleasantly surprised)
so what penetrating questions should l ask?
Pleasew folk feedback,feedback,thanks all. Frank. (e-m firstname.lastname@example.org )
