    I have 2.25" MTB tires and just bought/installed the 65mm Longboards. Any bike shop should be able to order them from QBP. You should probably go one size down from that, I forget what they recommend...

    That's the plan with my current commuter MTB. I had a drop bar conversion in mind for the past year, but ended up sticking with city bars and trigger shifters to keep cost down for commuting duty.

    I've seen the pure rando blog guys say the same thing about their favorite frames, that loading up a handlebar bag on the right bike makes it handle better. I'll have to feel it to believe it.

    Aren't you potentially getting just as wet by doubling your commute time in a downpour by walking vs biking? Honest question. Or is it safety that's the factor?
