Waters muddied

Being a somewhat acquisitive sort, I am always looking for a new bike to add to my hypothetical stable. Lately, though, it's been the process more than the goal; I'm riding all sorts of bikes. And I had, almost settled on a drop bar road bike.

But then I rode here:

This was a short trail that I ran into while attempting to find another trail. Riding this trail for even a short distance, I was glad that I didn't have a skinny-tired road bike. The Schwalbe Big Apples on my bike navigated the dirt and mulch just fine.

But it did start me thinking about how nice it would be to have a mountain bike.  Which muddies the waters somewhat as far as the decision making process...but it does mean that I'll now have more fun in the process by test riding mountain bikes as well as road bikes.

Or I'll go crazy trying to come to a decision. I'll let you know.

  1. And if you haven't tried a fat bike then there's that style to test ride.. So many bikes, so little time!
