I am off to Germany for 4 months.
Frankfurt area.

Which bike(s) should I take?


then fixed? the SS the spare parts bike? the XC the AM the DH the Monster. the road bike?

and

are the two I think will do me.

Might change the tyres over to Nic and RR.

    i hate to admit this (i really do) but that fixie is absolutely tip top looking. im so tempted to do soemthing similar (minus the fork trickery and with the adition of a free wheel).

    either way, back to the subject in hand, i couldnt recommend any specific bike but i would like to remind you that both of the current choices are devoid of rear suspension, i would maybe suggest reviewing that.

    Surely the TANK is the one bike for any occasion?

    It might squash the Suzuki.

    Ah, of course. Yes. Shame that.
    Can you not ride it from Sweden to Frankfurt?
    That seems the sensible option.

    Failing that, do the boring thing and take the bike that suits the kind of riding you'll be doing most of the time.

    I say take the fixie, it's lovely, but gay in a good way, thus reducing risk of theft...

    Dont take the SS to Germany, they did some awful things over there in the mid 1940's.

    I think the SS as well and put the Big apple slicks on it. so that is 3 bikes. better get another carrier.

    pics later.
