Thanks Arnold. I may try Creek later in the season. I would probably rent as I am afraid of breaking your bike. If it’s a friends bike I care, if it’s a rental, I care less(but still don’t want to break anything).
I have been correcting my eating habits since I have low self control, then I was going to start back up. I have started to run again but I'm keeping everything off of strava so I can shit on everyone when I go trophy hunting, I've got my eyes on your front door to mailbox trophy.
We got him a Raleigh Rowdy 20. It's rigid (no suspension fork) and has rim brakes but otherwise is a solid bike for a good price. It has a 6 speed rear derailleur and weighs in just under 20 pounds if I am not mistaken. He loves it.
