Road heads unite! 👍

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Does anyone else really prefer to ride a razor blade-like road bike over a tractor-like-mtb? Taking a corner practically dragging your handlebar makes having your fillings jarred loose over hitting a pebble worthwhile IMO.

Ask the police if they'd rather have a faster road bike or a more sluggish mtb.

When you get a bike, try leaning through a corner. I think you'll find your pedal will drag long before the handlebar. Sounds good though, keep trying!

I think you may have your bike types mixed up. Video is self explanatory

You can't talk about road head here, this is a family forum.

Did someone mention getting road head?

Try riding a crotch-rocket at the track, dragging knee/elbow thru a turn, then get back to me
