Re: I'm still trying to wrap my head around these bikes
Good point. It truly is a sweet bike. I guess the conclusion I am coming to is to get a lower cost bike that would be dedicated to motor cycling, rather than trying to bastardize my mountain bike.
I guess I will have to resign myself to the fact that when I am riding with my wife, she will continue to kick my a** on all the uphill climbs and I will beat her on the downhills. And after we get home and she cleans up her Santa Cruz Blur and I clean up mine- THEN I can go out and run the motor bike. I was hoping I could have a little of both worlds.
Thanks for all your ideas.
