The tempt is a little more mountain bikey with wider tires. The rove is a bit more on the road/gravel path/ around town kind of thing, a little more upright.

Solid choices there - I'd lean towards the Tempt if she ever wants to hit the trail ever, but the Rove is probably the better bet.

Hai guise. It was a nice 52 or so this morning so I went on a pre-work ride at the US National Whitewater Center here in Charlotte. Really :fuckyeah: that that place is on the way to my orifice. Road about 12 miles on the trails there, over 50 miles total. Good shit.

Also... for the experts. I am thinking about buying the gf a bike. Budget of under $500 (preferably well under), new or used, would be for light road, greenways, derping, no long rides or difficult trail stuff at all. Any recomendations? She seems to like beach cruiser style stuff, but those are lame, I'd likel something that isn't 100 pounds. Some kind of hybrid thing would be neat, I know little about bikes.

Something like this.

Honestly, best bet is going to the LBS to see what they have. Find something old stock or whatever.

Or

Whatever fits her right though. Ask her what style she would like. Anything is fine on paths.

Got the mount on and a test fit with the bike. Just waiting on the fairing to show up later today. Will be taking it out for a ride tomorrow.

Wheel on bike mount is the way to go unless you have a :truk:

Also no clamp mount for the rack must be great. :jelly:

I love the front of that jersey. Lol. Would need the Wrong portion to be more of a stamped type look though.

Went to Brewerytown Bikes today and picked up some tubes for Randy Savage’s 32mm tires :excited:

I haven’t tried out the new tubeless wheels I bought though. I have no bike time right now.

:sad:

Didn't let the fog/mist keep me inside yesterday and rode more of the rail trail. Was about 14 miles round trip. Once they open the bridge over the Lehigh I'll be able to ride my bike to Jim Thorpe.

Throw in a hill or two to build some muscle. Mountain biking requires a good bit of muscle power, as it tends to be short bursts of power whereas road biking is more constant even power.

There's barely any deals ever. For black friday all they offered was a bottle opener, sweat shirt and a water bottle with a rack purchase.

It's worth the money though. Plus, they have an awesome wall mount.

My lifting program is pretty heavy on squats so I should hopefully be okay lol

You'll probably be set for MTBing with a heavy squat regimen - it'll just be building the necessary muscle specificity for riding now.

Road riding will build endurance, MTBing builds power.

IIRC you need an extender to clear the spare tire too
