So I hop on the 'skinnie' road bike and ride my about town ride. Rode up to papa's house, no one home, well you know how 87 year old guys are, like a fart in the skillet and can't sit still.
My legs had fun, and so did I.
One step closer to you. I stopped at my local bike shop after work, where my friends and wrenches reside to talk about the bike below. Well, as fate would have it, I can buy this bike through Parrish at Bicycle World. I believe strongly to support your local folks first. Last winter I was so tempted to buy a Pugsley. I said to myself if I am still riding like a crazy man this coming fall, I will buy a real "snow bike" So Salsa comes out with this girl, I like the aluminium frame, and 4 inch tire capability. Typically a good percentage of time in Iowa winters, the snow cover is deep enough that a "skinnie" Riding Mountain bike frames and tires you can't hook up. Most of us mountain bikers were slaughtered in the Triple D race this last January in the deeper snow by Pugsley's and their 4 inch tires. I say most of us because there were a few manimals that just kept kick'n slipping and sliding and pounded through with very little traction.
Thanks for stopping
