A friend was upgrading to a Specialized bicycle and I said that I was interested in getting it. Why would I want another bicycle?
I put a lot of miles on my bikes; hundreds of miles on multiple bikes. I have gone around a total of 3000 miles since January. I always have a bike ready for the type of riding that I want to do.
Last weekend I was walking into a rummage sale and I saw a a Blackburn Trak Stand. This bike will fit on that trainer for the bad weather days. You can take a bike on and off the trainers but it is so much nicer to set it and keep it there.
The new bike for me is a Schwinn Trailway. It has 700c tires and that matches my tour bikes and it will ride comfortably on many surgaces. Instead of the drop bars it has the upright style. This will be a comfortable bike to ride around town and on the rail trails. The headset has a mount which can fine tune the bar position. The frame is aluminum and the ride is very responsive.
