I have a mountaing bike which I have been using it for 2 years especially on 50-90km tours in rural areas (lots of climbing). It's in very good condition but I want to ride faster and longer.
I have 3 options.
1. Slick tires
2. Buy a Road Bike
3. Buy a Hybrid/Touring Bike
Slick tires option is the cheapest one. But I don't know whether I will get what I want with this option or not.
Road bikes are really attracting me. But I have some doubts about riding comfort and climbing to hills with it which we have lots of them.
Most reasonable option left is buying a hybrid or touring bike. They ensures both comfort and speed. But the road bikes' appearance attracts me.
What do you think?
