- Muddy Commute Bike Options
My commute is mostly along an old railway line with some muddy patches then through a farm and onto a road for a couple of miles. I currently use a pretty old heavy hardtail MTB and am looking for something a bit faster and I’d also like to be able to fit a rack and full mudguards.
What are some good, relatively cheap options? I’ve been looking at gravel bikes (particularly the voodoo limba) but am open to any bikes that would suit the terrain.Posted 1 month agoswanny853Subscriber
If it’s flat, a singlespeed has less things to clean. Not a make or break thing though.
What are you planning on hanging on the rack? My commute used to involve some unmade road and I used a pannier for a long time. It often got grubbier than I’d like- periodically ended up smearing mud on my trouser leg once I’d got changed at work.
I ended up using a rucksack (for other reasons really) but if I knew I was doing a lot of muddy commuting these days I’d probably at least consider something like a rack pack or Carradice that’s protected by the mudguard.Posted 1 month ago
