Default Re: My impressions after 1st long ride

I have to take an occasional bumpy dirt road to avoid areas of dangerous traffic.

I was never comfortable on my motorized mountain bike until I added taller, beach cruiser handlebars.

Your body will adapt to most of the vibration.

Rear suspension can create a lot of chain problems and finding a suspension fork that fits can take a while if you don't have the now standard 1 1/8" threadless steerer.
Larger tires (26x2.125, 26x2.5) may accomplish almost as much.

Good luck.
