Its weird how things work. I recently traded one of my fixed gear
bikes for a road bike. the road bike is now my new daily ride. I did
it for a few reasons- one, being that my knees were killing me (and
yes I had the right saddle height and all the other crap), another was
because I started wanting to ride further distances and even though I
could do it on a fixed gear it would be a lot more uncomfortable. I
believe you need the right tool for the right job.
What’s weird is the looks I get now- they're the same looks I got
years ago when people realized I didn’t have gears. I’m just waiting
for someone to ask “so, you just pull those levers on the handle bars
and it slows you down?”.
edit: the bike i got is a trek 1500,it evens has the discovery channel paint job.
edit#2: its the paint job its a little to flashy for me. the bikes itself is awesome.im totally into the way it accelerates,two turns of the cranks and your up to speed and climbing is too easy.
