Now that I'm the owner/rider of a new Giant Cypress LX and have been experiencing the ease of ride on somewhat smooth surfaces, I begin to wonder what gravel or rail-trails might be like with this type of bike. I turned onto a stone road the other evening and noticed a slight bit of instability with the 40mm tires of the hybrid.
This all prompted me to think of the possibility of owning a comfort bike (Trek Navigator 300, Specialized Expedition Elite, or Giant Sedonna) for those occasions when we consider the trails. I also wonder how my wife will handle the trails with her Cypress LX.
What do you think?
Do many other people have a selection of different bikes for various occasions?
Thanks a million! The responses, suggestions and general chat on this line are GREAT!
