I'm an experienced bike commuter and touring cyclist. I have passions for folding bikes, drawing and painting, and playing my guitars. I'm often seen hauling groceries with or taking photos from my bike. I'm also a musician, and my band also has released a couple of albums.

comment Is bike fit really needed?
4. Research bike fit yourself and adjust your bike accordingly. It won't be as good as a pro fitting, but it's definitely better than nothing.

comment Looking for advice on upgrading
This question is kinda vague as it is now. Can you clarify what you want from the bike? More speed? Better hill climbing?

You can also remove the pedals from a regular bike and lower the saddle a bit to get more or less the same effect.
