Bike for wife: update old , or just get a new one?
My wife currently has an old Specialized hard rock with 24" wheels. Its not a bad bike, but she cannot even come close to keeping up with me when we ride on the road. I would like to give her a better opportunity to keep up.
She does not want a road bike, but likes the hybrids. I could go out and just get her a hybrid with some road tires, but was wondering about just updating the MTB.
How effective would/could it be to outfit her current bike with some road bike gearing and some 24" road tires?
