So I have a Gary Fisher Gitche Gurnee. It's pretty much a once or twice a week commute bike (10 miles or so one way, 20 round trip), ride around town, maybe every once in a blue moon, take her out on some of the crappy off-road options Virginia Beach and the surrounding area offers (think flat, but curvy trails).
Thing is, my bike is completely rigid. Now, I don't do anything extreme with my bike by any means. We have no hills to downhill on, I can't bunny hop, and the most "mountain-bike" thing I do with my bike is jumping occasional curbs or doing the 20 yards of single track-ish trail I have to play with to get to work.
While that's the case, I think that getting some forks in the front could soften up the jolt of joints in sidewalk, curbs, potholes, etc.
Am I being ******** and looking to waste efficiency and money at the price of a mild gain in comfort?
Lemme know your thoughts.
