Thanks for the warm welcome.Here it is 4:oo am,1 hour before I hop on the bike for my morning commute.A bit chilly this morning but not as bad as it has been.
Funny how I always get the same "You should get a road bike" responce.That was all I rode at one time but I just couldnt ride by all those stairs and hills without catching some air.Plus I feel 100% more confident when Im offroad having put 200 plus miles on my bike "on road' the week before.
Have a great day everyone.
Dont listen to that "you should get a road bike" nonsense, I live right on the Pinellas Trail and love to ride my MTB on it all the time.. I guess that most FS bikes would be cushy but some people dont understand the way an Epic is set up, the best of both worlds.. rides like a Hart Tail until the FS is needed.
Anyhow, in my case, it was much cheaper to buy a bad ass set of Off-Road wheels and a set of 1.5 tires rather than listening to the people that say.."you should get a road bike"
Enjoy your new ride!
