I used to live in Edinburgh and ride Inners DH, Glentress Black etc, and spent odd weekends in the Lakes and Dales, and go to Alps occasionally. I bought a Bionicon Ironwood - 8" travel, 36lb etc. Loved it.
Then I moved to Cambridgeshire. The big bike hadn't been ridden since July when we roadtripped up to Golspie. Yesterday, I wheeled my SS out of the shed to go to Brandon/Thetford to find the back brake not working, so I decided, rather than go out on road bike, I'd take the big bike to Thetford. Hee hee.
And it was hard work. But it was quite fun, which has left me in a dilemma:
Do I put the big bike on a diet (mostly in the wheel department) and try to make it a bit easier to ride? It's got fat AM/FR rims on, so dropping some weight here should be easy.
Or do I (attempt to) sell it and get something suitable to replace it with? Trouble is, it's a bit niche as a bike, so unlikely to be sold quickly, or at a good price. And I don't want to sell it, cause I'd miss it. But I hate having it and not using it... See my problem?
Any advice? (keeping it AND buying another bike is not an option)
