100% this. In my market, top notch ~20 year old rigid MTB's are 100-150 $ and are perfect for this. I use them for commuting and touring.
Any 26" tire will fit those rims. Didn't know you had a lockout, that definitely makes it a better candidate for a conversion. :thumb:
It doesn't necessarily have to change the geometry, there are suspension corrected aftermarket forks available. I've done it before, my girlfriends 1996 GT Pantera is superb with a Tange Infinity...
I tried Big Bens for 3,000 miles recently on my converted MTB commuter, and went back to 1.5" tires, the Vittoria Randonneur Pro's I ran for the previous 6,000+ miles. I have Vittoria Rando Pros on...
The Cougar Creek fire isn't small and is to the south.
Cougar Creek Fire grows 5,000 acres as containment shrinks | Local | yakimaherald.com
When I checked the forecast early this morning it was for wind out of the SW for the few days previous to the ride, and the fire appears to be to the south of the planned ride area... O.o
I try and keep that in mind that while I'm blowing their mind, that I'm also showing them what is possible. Until I met a co-worker who had cycled across the country, I had no idea such...
I don't think I've ever told you how much admire and envy you!
Also, good job!
So, between a recent run-in with forest fire smoke while touring in California, noticing before that, that I have developed a spitting habit only when cycling, and planning on doing the High...
I'm starting to worry it's going to be smokey from all the fires. Going to have to do some research on prevailing winds, forecasts and such. I just rode through some forest fire smoke touring in...
Not sure what the ACA recommends for Washington, but from Seattle to Olympia is uninteresting suburbs along the I-5 corridor. When I've cycled long distance (touring, & day trips to Oly) to the...
Couple of the incidents mentioned above reminded me of several things about fires and this last trip I did. I too experienced some rather weird light quality, particularly on the worst days,...
I recently rode across Northern California doing cycle camping and staying with friends. When I went to leave the Clear Lake area where I had been staying with friends for a couple of days there...
I tour a bit when I can, and I ride to work everyday. I ride very upright on converted MTB's. I like riser bars that almost look like BMX handlebars (but not quite!)
My current favorite is the...
Well, now isn't the time to ride it, it's all on fire. :(
I've never done it, but I'm doing it this year!
I ride a minimum of 60 miles a week just going to work and back, and just came back from a short bicycle tour across Northern California where...
Very nice! Which fenders are those?
I do that sometimes! It's fun!
One of my favorite responses to honks/shouts, is to put a knuckle to the corner of my eye and make a motion as if I'm wiping away a tear for their horrible inconvenience.
Sometimes it is educational for the driver, and any observers.
Counterpoint to "what crazy stuff did someone shout at you from a car" thread.
I'll start it off; climbing slowly up a steep hill in the bike lane, a car cuts in front of me and drives up the...
My alternatives to the Space Needle:
1) The observation deck on the 62nd floor of the Columbia Center/Bank of America Tower (701 5th Ave). Very inexpensive, better views,...
Are you going to have bikes with you in Mukilteo? I like Japanese Gulch there, and there's a trail alongside the railroad from Boeing that leads to it that I liked as well. If you are going to have...
