[OFFICIAL] Cycling thread for commuters and the casual enthusiast
I found the other cycling thread very roadie centric.
I'm making this thread dedicated to all the people who commute by bicycle and the casual enthusiast. Nothing wrong getting decked out in spandex and racing around in a $5000 bike... Its just a bit too intense for me.
I will be guiding the discussion of this thread. Enjoy!
So what type of bikes are you into? Do you commute, or do you just ride recreationally on trails?
Myself... I've been riding old steel road bikes for a few years now.... At first it was because I wanted to get into road cycling, but I could only afford really old bikes. Now I just like the charm of old vintage steel bikes.
I commute to work by bike, and i travel most places by bike since I live near the downtown Toronto core.
I've always wanted a dutch bike though. I think its better suited when I go out since I wear non-athletic clothing most of the time.
