Re: Greeting from dynamic downtown Dickinson, Texas
Welcome to the forum. You've come to the right place for help and advice.
There is no reason whatsoever that your idea can't be realized. You're not asking for the impossible. In fact, your concept should make for a very nice ride. Go for it, disregarde what the bike shops tell you and come back here if you need help.
Keep us posted on your progress too.
