I found that owning a $150 bike gave me a certain pride of ownership and investment in the sport, that encouraged me to go to the ‘dome. Maybe a season pass for a bike would give me the same incentive, but the pay as you go long term provided a little more resistance. It is a lot easier when it is already paid for and committed.
Besides, it is awfully nice not to have to check stem length, pedal type, and seat height every time I got a rental bike (not to mention being able to play around with gears on my own bike).
The KHS was a bit of a pain on steep tracks as it would smack a pedal if you weren’t careful. The BB is just a touch to low for comfort.
