Mountain biker in the city?
I used to hit trails pretty regularly, nothing too hardcore,just fun riding around my house and the occasional trip out of state. I now live in downtown chicago and don't have as easy access to trails. My questions are:
A. does anybody also live in chicago and know where the closest trails are?
B. I have a specialized hardrock. I put road tires on it, but it is uncomfortable to ride on the paved paths around here for long distance. Does anyone have a recomendation for a bike that will function on the paved paths and then also be able to take some trails too? My current living situation won't allow for two bikes. Like I said, I never do any hardcore trail riding.
