Winter Bike?

February 15, 2009

I have been thinking about my ‘winter bike’ idea, and I realize the bike I bought is trying to be too much.  It can’t have it be a fixie and a mountain bike and a winter commuter.  However, it is possible to salvage the bike.  I could put a big chain ring on it.  Right now the gearing is miserable.  I detest the handlebars, too.  Maybe they can be adjusted.

My other altertative is to sell this bike and buy an old junker track bike, put some cross tires on, and go fixie.  This is the attractive idea, at the moment.

    Had a feeling that might happen. It’s good to rethink your ride when it’s not quite working. When the gearing doesn’t work for you, it really is miserable. What bothers you about the handlebars?
