new year|new bike
It's a new year, and frankly I ain't getting any younger, and my tailbone pain has only receded but not gone away completely. KT is tired of the pain in her ass, so I am in the market for some new wheels. I have been considering the Specialized Roulux, as it is touted as the most ergonomic bicycle on the market. I like that they specifically mention that the bike absorbs an uneven city landscape, not your butt. So I am planning on getting fit at Mike's Bikes and test-riding one very soon.
My goal is to find a bike that feels like the right bike for me. So I'm not going to make my decision based on what the design team says alone. It's important to test the waters before you totally jump in.
In the meantime, one of our loyal readers sent me this great article with a wealth of urban bike reviews.
I'm curious what our readers might have to say through the experience of riding their own bicycles in their own cities. I'm looking for comfort, ergonomics, smooth ride, and of course, style. SEND ME YOUR RECOMMENDATIONS, s'il vous plaît!
