Bikes for SHFT


so I have mentioned bikes a few times, mine is an older Jeep Bike! Yuppers a Jeep bicycle, and it is heavy old, sturdy and rides not too bad. That all being said, I think I will have to part ways with it. This bike, just does not fit me, it does not matter how I adjust it, I think the frame is the wrong size for me, because me knees kill me even on short trips and this has kept me off of it too long now.

Next week, I will be sneaky and go with it to a bike store and ask them what they think. Then I will start looking for a newer bike from the USED section or Kijiji.ca or yard sales etc. My last bike in BC had front suspension and I can not tell you what a difference that made. The extra wide deep grip with road centre tires,  made a huge difference as well and I loved riding that bike.

I was going to take a pic of the bike but the wind is about 60km hr, with rain so no pics with my cell phone in this weather. Below are a couple of links to some excellent bike pages.

1st this is just such a cool touring bike tribute page I am in awe of some of them and astounded at some others, like the Big Wheel Big how the hell do you ride that for hours at a time?

ok, so how do you get up on this big wheel bike to tour, how do you tour for hours and hours with it??

2nd is a site from a manufacture that has way more different styles of bikes than I ever thought possible!

Both sites are worth taking a look, both sites have tons of info from people whom bikes are a passion and love affair.
