Your Dream Bike, a Survey

Your Dream Bike, a Survey

Heads-up people: This is our first-ever post from Fat Cyclist. The cross-pollenation of RKP and Fat Cyclist continues—Padraig.

I spend a ridiculous amount of time thinking about bikes, and more specifically, what my next bike ought to be. Indeed, if I were to track how much time I spend riding bikes versus thinking about bikes, I’d probably be pretty embarrassed.

But my point is: I like thinking about bikes. And it is my fervent hope that I am not alone in this.

Which is why Red Kite Prayer and are jointly conducting the “Dream Bike Survey.” Please take it. It’ll only take a minute or so, and then Hottie, Padraig, and I will crunch various numbers, draw wild speculative conclusions, and then both talk about what we’ve learned on The Paceline and right here on RKP.


If you value independent media, please lend your support to RKP.

    I filled it out, but I actually bought my ( 2 ) ” dream bikes ” over the last 24 months. And my wife would kick my butt if I bought any more, seeing as I have 3 bikes now ( and she only has 2 – uh oh ).

    I get older and the hills here get steeper. Turning 50 made me want to ride places I haven’t wanted to go before. Gravel roads, trails that cut through the backs of neighborhoods that connect the “good climbs” so I don’t have to get in traffic as often, and oh those really steep f$%#(NG hills here in Austin that always have the best tree cover over them and the quietest roads. Give me the moots with the 30 tooth small chainring in front and a 32 in the back and I should be able to go anywhere around here. I might be slow nowadays, but I’ll be damned if I’ll put my foot down on the hill.
