Have been deliberating for some time now – and with a heart of steel, have decided to go ahead and get the Merida Matts Sub 40-V 18″ 🙂Lets see where this goes. If it does go well, I’ll save fuel, be healthier and would have done that little extra for the planet. Its also a slower-than-(motor)bikes mode of transport, so I should get to see more. Next Question: where does one park these things. Home ? Office ? Oh, and the extra vocabulary I picked up in all of this: Hardtail : no suspension at the rear
Lockout : Switch to a “no-suspension” mode for serious climbs etc apart from the usual d??railleurs, new frame fundaes, etc.
