I am thinking of upgrading from my Rockhopper to a full suspension. I commute to work with my HT but how would it be on a FS? Thanks!
I commute everyday on an FS bike.....winter summer....works just fine thanks...tracerprix said:I am thinking of upgrading from my Rockhopper to a full suspension. I commute to work with my HT but how would it be on a FS? Thanks!
That might be what I should do. Another wheel set, thanks!!!!!!jeffscott said:I commute everyday on an FS bike.....winter summer....works just fine thanks...
This year I bought another wheelset, I swtich from knobbies to slicks in 5 minutes now.
I see a problem here and is not having 2 bikes nor commuting 4 miles each way!tracerprix said:Thats not a bad idea, but I was hoping to not have 2 bikes, it would upset the wife! My commute is 4 miles each way.
The "my back hurts" card won't do ****. MAYBE you could pull off the "it isn't safe on the road..."???martinsillo said::lol: well...give her two months then play "the geometry of this bike is not for road use, my back hurts" and see what happens...if that doesn't work buy the set of wheels!
Ohhh and you still have the Foldie card! :lol:
Cause she will end up with 3 bikes and you will finally get your garage sale pos commuter.tracerprix said:I've been thinking, why start listening to the wife now. Ha ha
Smart man! j/k. I went through all of this with the wife. The secret is figuring out how make her as big of a bike addict as you!umarth said:After reading this thread, I'm calling off my wedding.
You could probably get a half-decent used commuter for less than the price of a new (or even used) wheelset.tracerprix said:The wife said NO to two bikes, WTF!!!!!
I guess a FS with another wheel set for road tires
Oh Lordy, Lord! Cannot upset the wife with you having 2 bikes!tracerprix said:Thats not a bad idea, but I was hoping to not have 2 bikes, it would upset the wife! My commute is 4 miles each way.
I like that, that's a good onetraffic002 said:Hm, I remember when my wife got all upset about me buying another bike without her consent.
I let her rant and get all upset and I apologized.
But in the end, I told her very firmly that I bought it with money I saved up. And it's not like I went gambling or went on a drinking binge or cheated with another woman.
I bought a bicycle!
A hobby to keep me sane and stay in shape.
