Living between city and country. Trying to do it by bike.
Friday, September 30, 2011
I originally purchased this Diamondback Miramar so that I could do a triathlon. It's a hybrid with wide tires and a non-aggressive riding position because I also wanted it for around town practicality - so it was alright for the triathlon but not ideal. Yes, I do have my eye on a few other bikes - most of them are Surly's but we'll have to see. I'm not a wealthy person so I can't have the stable of bikes that others do. I have the Miramar and maybe one day I'll have another as well.
In the meantime, my hacker has gotten me to work and back spring, summer, fall and winter (Canadian winters too). Except for occasional adjustments it's been dependable enough. I just bought a work stand from MEC (Mountain Equipment Co-Op) but its on backorder. It'll come in very handy when winter gunk needs to get cleaned out of my drivetrain. I'll review it when it arrives.
