How is that 3-4KM if you used int 10KM daily per all summer for 3 years?

It all makes sense now

The original reason for the shape of a "woman's" bike was because their skirts got caught up on the crossbar of a "man's" bike.... The design has stuck ever since for whatever reason...

Is the bike gone from the website?

I went through the sizing guide posted earlier and was going to see if they had an XXL frame.

Hi everyone
I know I'm going off topic but...

I'm looking to get a MTB for a while and I was planning to get the Diamondback hook MTB
But it's not available in Canada.
Can someone tell me something similar that is being sold in Canada to that entry MTB I mentioned

3-4k = 3,000 - 4,000

I'm approximating 4 months of riding at 10km per day, about 1,200 kms a year give or take.

30 years ago, when my grandpa taught me riding bikes, he taught me two ways to get on a running bike. A lady way is crossing your leg from the front - which requires a women’s bike to do so; a men’s way is to crossing the leg from the backward of the seat, and men’s bikes are supposed only fit to do so.

My grandpa was using his old black bike deliver rice during our war period, to support his family of 7. It was a period his city was locked down by invaded army. So he and his friends made a secret team and transported basic food. Each trip each of them put 200 kg rice on a single bike, and had to go across the border of soldiers. Old black bikes were the only thing they had. There was no room for failure or they would all been caught and die. They did not have mountain bike at that time, and their route were mostly country road including tiny single-woodlog bridge.

When I was a kid, I had a normal brand women’s bike and later on a giant lady’s cruise bike. My Giant was great, but my normal brand worked well too.

I think besides the brand, the reason of cycling and the person who rides also play a huge part in choosing a bike.

In BC. I walked by the store today in Burnaby and it was open for customers. Pretty empty with controlled entry and exits.
No huge lineup for returns as predicted after the huge clearance sale a few weeks ago.
