My road bike is currently on the back of my sister’s car heading to our weekend campsite. So this morning I rode my purple monster MTB to work.
If my road bike has been neglected for maintenance, my MTB has been abused. I’ve lube the chain once or twice since I bought it in 2009. You should take those numbers literally not figuratively. It’s never been serviced and rarely been cleaned.
But she’s a beauty to ride. I feel like it was built just for me despite it being 66% recycled. The only things I need to change are the sticky bar grips, chain and cassette, and I’d like some clipless pedals for road riding, which I would swap back to flats for mountain biking.
I thoroughly enjoyed my slow paced commute on the purple monster.
Total: 14km to work. Home trip TBA.
