    30 and getting back into cycling! I plan to do a couple of longer rides on the trail with the bike....as soon as I put it back together. It's winter, that means tear down and service time. My rear...

    I would check out the Panasonic, but I don't like step through frames and prefer a road geometry to a hybrid/mtb.

    Skinny tires, new crank with 52 or 59t chainring and balls of steel to go that fast! I've hit 42mph on my road bike and while fun it scared the s&!t outta me.

    Gearing question

    I'm messing around with a mtb that I use for family rides and turning it into more of a city bike. Mostly flat not to many big hills on the ride I use it for. Would it be better to run a 12-25 or...

    Which would be better to have, a 12-25 rear or 14-28 rear? The 12-25 is much higher quality although that shouldn't make much of a difference.

    26x1.95 knobbies were bad enough on that tank, 2.125s and it would be like trying to pedal a Cadillac DeVille!

    If both bikes are of similar quality and ride charictaristics then go with the LBS you like more. It's where you'll be going back if you don't do your own maintenance so it's important to be happy...

    Thanks for the replies! I have taken the drop bar out on the C&O once and it was a little squirrelly, but that was with the trailer in tow. I was worried the tires/tubes wouldn't be able to take the...

    The path W&OD path I used to ride has heavy traffic all times of day on the weekends. I really enjoyed all the people who thought they were the next Lance Armstrong fully kitted out yelling at me...

    Forte Gotham and Forte Merto tires are cheap and reliable in my experience. Just put a new set of gothams 26x1.75 on my dirt trail bike this weekend. About $15-$16 a tire plus a couple for tubes at...
