[quote=jamey][quote=kmcdon]I have a skinny tired road bike, and I’m dying to hit some of the canyons up by boulder this spring/summer. I’m not as fast as you by far, but I can ride at a moderate pace for many many miles. We should talk.
I’d be down for this. These are the only type of road rides I really enjoy at this point. We also need to get out on fat bikes the next time there’s good snow on the trails.[/quote]
I just rode (slowly) all the way up sunshine canyon last weekend, so found it’s do-able on snowpack and road bikes. Just not ideal for riding down, best to descend the pavement dpwn boulder canyon. Also do-able on the random hot weekends like this one coming up, so let me know if you ever have in mind to ride up this way. I don’t mind going at the all-day endurance pace. I don’t really want to hammer when it comes to 2 hour climbs.
I actually just sold my cross bike, but to a friend who hasn’t paid me yet (i’m a pushover apparently). So I plan on replacing it at some point, just need to save a bit more. I actually have two other bikes (plus the other mtb i need to sell), but one’s a track bike and the other is my basket bike (and only fits 23s under the fenders), so I am definitely short a road-ish bike that fits big tires. I’ll replace it soon enough.
