33 year old 200lb Roadracer, looking for something to keep me entertained thru the winter. Some cobblestone street intervals and some rooty single track, some plain old just riding around on errands etc.
Looking for a fun bike, but I am aware that you get what you pay for. Don't plan on racing it, but you never know. I do enjoy laying the lumber while riding old or "subpar" equipment.
I'm a good wrench etc...
I've checked out Specialized, Cannondale, Gary Fisher, Trek(shudder) etc..
Tell me what you guys think and why.. Corporate brainwashing and Blind brand loyalty is OK, just tell me why..
Lets hear it.
