We decided to do a tandem ride today. We have not had this bike out much this year. We rode a 31.5 mile loop. Every time I ride this bike, I think we would enjoy more of a road type instead of the mountain bike, although this bike sure rides smooth. It is cro-moly frame with 26 x 1.95 tires. The gearing is nice and the bumps melt under you. It was too nice of a day to set in the house....so a nice mellow ride was in order. We have a lot of sand...this is sand country.
