    I recently got a fuji 29er (29" wheels) mountain bike for getting to and from work, doing just short of twenty miles a day. It's amazing how quick the fitness builds up.

    I suppose most folks still run multi-geared stuff out in the woods, but I don't miss the complexity and fragility.

    hammer on--now is the time we ride!

    29" wheels, I thought you only really saw them on road bikes, but I am very out of touch and really don't know much about much other than what I have.
    I did used to have a really nice Peugeot 15 speed racer that I loved, it cost me.15 though that was 20 or so years ago. I killed.it by cycling.into the back of a.parked.car - that's the trouble with drop handlebars I suppose. I also smashed the back window of the car with my chin, hence the big scar on it.

    I used to do about 15 miles a day to and from work, a few miles 3 nights a week for nightschool and then weekend rides too, I moved to Australia and rode about double that to and.from work most days for quite a while but eventually I got a work van. As I said I am slowly getting back into it now.
    I will be back in Perth in a week and a bit, so will try to remember to take some photos.
    I will say now that it really doesn't look flash, a crappy paintjob prevented cycle theft in London.

    That's what a MTB should look like. Well done Wade

    Another reason why I liked the.Peugeot - friction gears none of this indexing nonsense, same as my tourer I have now, the only difference is.that I have bar end rather than frame shifters.

    The 29" mtb are very fun Fuji Nevada 29er 1.9 2014 Mountain Bike | Evans Cycles that's the one I got. I know nothing about the technical side of bikes but can highly recommend giving a 29er ago

    I used to buy my bontrager streetlites from Evans, they are a really good road slick, and pretty much bulletproof. 29" wheels just strike me as being a bit weak, and slow to accelerate, but they should be fast, but like I said I know.little, and if you like it then who cares. I take it it.has held.up well for.you?
