Just ordered a Windsor Cliff 29.1... New Here!
I was big into BMX until I was 16, then I got my driver's license and kind of grew out of it. I used to race, dirt jump, do street and even went to Camp Woodward two summers.
Now 8 years later, I'm married and my wife wanted to get a bike as a way to exercise and something enjoyable for us to do together. We found her a cheap mountain bike on craigslist and I've been riding around one of my old BMX bikes! I was pretty excited to wipe the dust off and bring it out of the basement, but riding it isn't the same as I remember. It's too small and I look pretty silly on it I think.
I looked at mountain bikes at the local bike shop, but I didn't like the shocks and gearing, and the price was way over budget. I thought about getting a BMX cruiser (24"), but then stumbled on the single speed 29ers.
I saw a both good and bad reviews for BikesDirect.com, but most of the bad was silly stuff. I used to work on my bikes so I see no reason why I couldn't put together essentially a giant BMX bike. I know it's not the best bike in the world, but in reality I'm probably only going to be riding it up and down a gravel trail so I'm sure it will be perfect for me.
Anyway, sorry for rambling and I'm looking forward to my new bike!
Does anyone have this bike? Thoughts?
