To make a long story short: I don't want to have more than one bike. I ride strictly on pavement. I am in the midst of creating an all weather bike. It will be good for snow, freezing, sun, rain whatever. Many people will argue that this is what a mountain bike is. They're wrong. A mountain bike doesn't have the appropriate gearing for long road trips nor the correct energy output. Anyone who rides a mountain bike on the road will tell you this.
Has anyone already made an "all weather bike"? Does anyone have any suggestions for me? Does anyone have any pictures. This is going to be a fun experiment.
