My Regular Bike
I ride this bike more than the others. I'll call it the Regular Bike, because I ride it more regularly than the others. In the winter, it has fat knobbies, so the fenders are set for that diameter of tire, not these 1.25s you see in the photo. Click the photo for a bigger version.
It's the most comfortable bike I have. Comfort comes in more than one form. It fits like a glove and has felt that way since the day I put drop bars on it. So it's comfortable in that way.
It also feels comfortable after many miles. The seat fits me when I climb aboard and when I've clocked a couple of hours. The handlebars feel comfortable in my hands throughout the ride. The dimensions don't wear me out. So it's comfortable in that way too.
It takes the bumps well. I ride basically the same route to work each day. I know how the route feels in my butt, arms, hands, and shoulders. When I ride a true road bike, I go faster, but I feel each crack and lump. But on the Regular Bike I feel cush.
The Regular Bike looks pretty bad though. I'd like to get it powder coated. What color should I choose?
