The road bike was riden from the drops. (this nearly killed me - my lower back)
Fixed it for ya (I hope) , Old Town.
Was that 8 miles total or each way?
the max. pressures on the tires?
I'd be interested how the bikes compare on longer rides, say 30 or 60 milers.
I ride road but I'm no 'roadie'. I spend little time in the drops (usually just descents), must be my MTB cellular memory.
That would bother my back, too, it's hard enough doing longish road rides and sitting relatively stationary. MTB is moovin' and groovin'.
