My buddies have spent over 30 years riding and touring all over central and eastern Washington state. It has been great--lots of farming towns and even desert areas. We have also done some of the same in parts of Oregon, Idaho and Montana. It didn't take any traditional "attractions" to get us going,
Mirror - I was looking at a helmet mirror vs handlebar. Any suggestions? I'm afraid the handlebar mirror will accidentally get broke off especially since I don't plan on having a kick stand.
Last bit of advice I need and I have read the posts but one more time: 26 vs 700 wheels?
I disagree with Russ. There are differences between stock and custom bikes just as there are differences between a custom made suit and a suit off the rack; just as there are differences between a Huffy and a Trek. After being happy with my stock bikes, I decided to invest in a custom bike. My last two bikes have been custom (Waterford) and I can tell the difference in the ride and how I feel at the end of the ride. An added benefit is the very noticeable craftsmanship differences. There are some excellent stock bikes and investing in a custom bike is not necessary to enjoy riding, but there are differences, and that is why there is a difference in cost.
Why not have a custom bike built instead?Simple answer for most of us; $$$.
