Which changes do I need to make
Hi all could do with some advice.....
I have recently purchased an olympia country hybrid bike
COUNTRY - Hybrid - Models 2016 | Cicli Olympia
Mines the 21s
I got it for an absolute steal so couldn't resist even though I was looking for more of a gravel bike. My main riding is just for leisure anyway and I don't think I'll be entering any gravel/cyclocross races in the near future but I do like the more aggressive setup of a cyclocross/gravel bike l. I know I can ride any bike wherever I want to anyway but would like to see if there's any options to alter this bike or would I be better off selling and changing altogether?
This bike has lockout forks and although that's cool for on road and you get the option of a bit of a softer ride off I measured them against a pair of rigid forks and they're a whole 3 inches longer which obviously raises the front of the bike to a more leisurely ride position.
Basically what I'm asking is could I adapt this bike to be a bit more aggressive in riding position (I know I'm not going to make it a road bike but somewhere closer to a gravel bike would be great)
The bike frame I has is a small so not ideal but could probably get away with it with a longer stem. any other options available to me and how easy is it to change from suspension to rigid (bike has vbrakes and trigger shifters).
Thanks in advance
