    if you go 1x10 is it a hassle to switch to a double crank and add a front derailleur if you change your mind? If you can afford to change later, I think giving...

    Just ordered some kool stop dual holder/insert, and it came with extra salmon pads. Assuming changing the pads is easy, I could swap in the salmon if the weather is nasty. Otherwise I'll leave the...

    I would not get a road bike for paths/trails. They are not as nimble as mountain or hybrid bikes, mainly due to how the bike is designed and how you sit on it. I think a hardtail mountain bike is a...

    Since my earlier post I've given this more thought (it was morning and I hadn't had enough caffeine :p).
