By the looks of this thread, people spend a lot of money of their commuter bikes. How often do you clean them? Since september i havn’t cleaned mine, and haved used it ever day, come rain or shine. (only 5 miles round trip)
If mine was expensive, i think i’d worry about it too much lol.Posted 9 years agoCaptain_CrashMember
Liking the Kona, Nisch !.
I’ve a Giant XTCse from 06. Stuck some reba race team forks on it, roads tyres and away I go. XT and XTR running gear/brakes. Love it.
Great stuff, HT MTBs for commuting, but with a quick tyre change, ready for the single track. Its ACE.
