    If you are scared of toeclips, you may be better off with a good set of BMX platform pedals. They will have a larger platform than your stockers and replacable metal pins that dig into your shoes...

    I do know cold, I grew up in northeast Ohio and lived north of Chicago for a few years. The original poster says he's from South Carolina. Shouldn't be a problem.

    It'll be fine. There are only about 3 models of 700c rim that are too wide for a 32mm tire, they are very difficult to find and don't come stock on any bikes except for the Surly Krampus.

    I have a Thudbuster on my Fargo and it is okay. It alows me to stay seated and spin a lower gear when there is quite a bit of trail chatter, but I still get the hardtail response when I stand to...

    The worksman seems a little pricey for what it is. I would recomend a used rigid mountain bike (from any of the major manufactures) to start if you know you are going to get a better bike later....
