I'm looking to get back into biking. I used to ride off-road until my beloved Specialized Rockhopper was stolen a few years ago.
I want a bike that I can ride longish distances on the road but also could ride on tow paths cycle tracks etc. I also want a bike that I will be able to rack up with panniers and do some touring in the summer.
I'm currently fancying a cannondale bad boy ultra but have been advised that it is difficult to fit panniers to bikes with disc brakes. Is this sound advice?
If so, I think I'll go for the rigid framed bad boy - unfortunately, it seems you have forego the front suspension to get the model without disc brakes.
Are there any bad boy riders out there who could share some reflections on strengths and weaknesses? Also, could anyone recommend anything similar?
