Configuring an old mountain bike for Cape Cod cycling this season.
I am a seven month resident of Cape Cod, who wants to return to distance cycling, using an 88 Nashbar mountainbike that will be sent up from Jacksonville, FL in the next couple of weeks or so.
Currently this bike is equipped with 26x 1.25 inch street tires with presta valved tubes, roadbike gearing, and friction shifting.
Yes, I am a RetroGrouch.
I need to hear from people who have bicycled The Cape before regarding equipment, especially tire sizes, etc., that best suits this terrain.
