Trade or loan me your road bike?
So I will be in Italy in 1 month for a wedding and will be doing some riding that week with a bunch of roadies. Besides my usual twice weekly XC riding, I'd like to do some more road miles. I've been commuting 24 miles twice a week on my hardtail with slicks. Not so efficient or comfortable.
I wanna get some longer road rides under my belt to be sure I don't embarass myself with these guys. Problem is, I sold my last (vintage) road bike 3 years ago.
Anyone interested in trading your road bike for a nice ti hardtail for a month? I'm 5'7". Or maybe loan me a spare bike for something in return (beer, medical services, goodwill)?
Thanks for considering. And of course, I am always up for a ride (Southern NH, North Shore Mass) on weekends or Thursdays. Cheers guys.
