Give him a gift certificate so he can get the Cannondale. If he’s near my age he wants the full suspension.
He is 53 and he told me he wants a Hardtail. I’ve talked with Specialized and the Trek dealers in my area and they basically pointed me towards a Specialized Rockhopper and a Treck XCalibur 7. What Giant and Cannondale bike would be comparable to those two above?
I like to ride fairly aggressive on some of the trails that I ride and the seat bags that I’ve used haven’t always been ideal. I like the TW because it is out of the way. Its also nice because I don’t always have to remember to pack a spare tube because it will always be on the hub. I could also put it on the seat post, I just have to figure it if I like it there or on the hub instead. Thanks a ton for that link! I really appreciate it.
Wow, I didn’t realize that not many people knew about them. A TW is a pouch that mounts on the hub of your front/back wheels that lies within the spokes. In it, it holds a spare tube. It is really nice because they don’t take up any space, don’t weigh much, and it is always nice to have a spare tube when your riding. I will try and find a picture and post one if I can. Apparently nobody knows. Is there any way that one of the Site Moderators would know about a TW?
