At the moment I have a rigid Cotic Soul for riding off road, and a Frankenstein's rigid tip bike for leaving locked up in town, towing the kids trailer, nipping to the shops etc..
I'd really like just the one bike though, and have seriously considered trying to make the Soul look a bit more ratty and undesirable to thieves, de-sticker it and fit a rack etc.. No matter what I do though, I can't get away from the fact that even in a fetching shade of mud brown, and with bits of electrical tape stuck all over it, it still looks classy (the nice drive train and finishing kit don't help) and I would probably weep if it got nicked..
I really don't want a soulless old nail for the (seemingly ever rarer) occasions that I do get out into the hills though..
Does anyone else have just one all purpose bike..?
Can anyone offer any suggestions as to things I should look at that could truly be defined as all purpose, practical and a delight..?
