25 January 2011 - 6:51The List: ummm, Which Bike Again?
I’ve had this discussion a with a couple of folks over the last couple of days, and I am no closer to a decision now that I was last week.
Because I am driving out, there is a good chance that I could probably bring two bikes if I pack the car up properly. At the moment, there are two singlespeed bikes in my stable that I would consider worthy bicycles of being part of the big road trip.
A9C, aka Rambo. Light, nimble, fun to ride and dead sexy. I’m pretty sure that this bike will be more than adequate, provided I don’t fall and bash myself to bits like I did last year.
Jet9 SS, aka Shredward Van Halen. There is no way you can tell me that this bike would not be fun to ride.
I got on the full suspension singlespeed thing a bit too late in the year for me to just put it on the back burner. I mean, I could really start playing with the set up, and get it out on some really good rides.
I can just bring one bike, just like everyone else. I’m pretty sure it will not impede my fun in any way.
This is the sort of thing that will drive me nuts during the trip. Sure, it is nice to have options, but lack of them sometimes is OK too.
I can pretty much guarantee a few things:
1. I would not be able to decide which one to ride at any given time
2. No matter which one I decide to ride, I’ll wish I was on the other
3. I would likely regret bringing two bikes just as much as I would regret bringing only one
How did this get so complicated? And I only have until Friday night to decide!
