Right on, thanks for the info! I’ll see what used options for bikes like those are out here.

We have some dirt/gravel trails right by my place that would be fun to ride, so if I were to swing this it looks like from your pics it would pull double duty and handle them well.. guess those are more what this bike is suited for than just pounding miles on the road, yeah?
Yeah this is pretty capable on cross country style bike trails. It won’t do well if there are jumps or big gnarly downhills and drop offs. But dirt trails yes. It’s very slow riding on the road and rides harsh on pavement due to the frame stiffness.
:word: yeah I wouldn’t (probably ever) be looking to do anything as intense as jumps or drops, so no worries there.

Posted up a Trek FX I found in the main bike chat.
