I haven't bothered anyone on this forum,yet
So........my quest for the perfect commuting bike continues.
I have thought about using a touring bike.
Why, you might ask?
Durability and stability........fenders and racks.........wide tires and winter studded tires
So, if you have seen other posts you know that I am thinking about a ss bike and have been considering cyclocross bikes-durability and wide tires........I want a cromoly frame.
My LBS has a Fuji touring bike and this one has rear horizontal drops.......
1. Any other touring bikes with horizontal rear drops?
2. what are the widest tires touring bikes can use? I am thinking about 35-38 with studs for the wintuh, ayuh, yessuh, heya in Maine.
3. has anyone converted a touring bike to a ss?
4. Have always wanted to do some more bike touring-who knows could always start..........
That's it for now.
