Mission Bikes?
#1
Hey folks, Already talked to PK about these and am wondering if any of you have ever seen or ridden or heard about mission bikes. They seem right nice and they look cool. The one I am looking at is here: http://annapolis.craigslist.org/bik/4886973074.html I have been toying with building a fixie and this may be a nice in between. Also am looking for a little slower bike to ride with the family. Can't ride the cervelo as I will leave them behind.

If your looking for a slower bike why not a Cruiser with fat tires, comfortable seat and V handle bars?

Was already thinking fixie so this could be sweet. It is a 2 speed and could be a filler for both needs. Just never heard of them before. I like the posture of a roadie since I broke my back.

Either bike type will work for getting a missionary around town. And yes, the mountain bike will be more suited to “p-day activities”. However, since most missionaries are based in urban settings, the urban bike will be provide reliable, easy to ride, simple transportation for daily mission work.

I personally like a lot of the components that the brand offers. They are simple and low profile and good quality.
