You like riding back-roads and maybe some dirt roads, too. A long ride on quite road of pavement or dirt is about as good as it gets — peaceful, seeing seldom ventured routes, and a comforting feeling of owning the roads. Now we want to know about the climate and weather conditions you ride in.

Question Two:

What pavement and dirt road conditions do you want your new bike to excel at?

  • Dry temperate conditions on decent roads. Where I live the weather is fairly average with rare exceptions. I want my bike to excel in decent weather conditions. The roads I ride are in decent condition, too. Fairly smooth, not a lot of pot holes or stutter bumps. The dirt roads are similar — reasonably well maintained. I tend not to ride in the rain. Ideal Bike Characteristics: This bike is fast and performance oriented on pavement and stable and secure on dirt roads. The bike’s geometry and tube set provide good traction in cornering and descending on dirt roads or sandy pavement. This bike can ride through just about anything I’ll find on the road. You can fit 33mm tires for the toughest of road conditions. The bike is still very light for good climbing and snappy acceleration in punchy group rides.

xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx Still working on this next section but each ‘condition’ follows the same format.

  • Really rough roads. I ride a lot of poorly maintained roads, broken pavement, with sand and debris everywhere. Traction and control are really important because of these conditions.

  • I get caught in the rain sometimes. It’s important to me to feel safe and have good traction in the rain because sometime I will be riding in wet weather. This means want the best possible brakes and tires for wet unpredictable conditions in which it’s sometimes difficult to see the road ahead.

  • All Conditions. I’ll ride in anything including rain, sleet, snow, and ice. I most often ride in dry conditions but it sure does seem to rain and snow a lot, too. My bike’s brakes, traction, and gearing needs to excel in the worst weather.

  • Frozen conditions are the norm. I ride more in snow and icy conditions than I do in dry temperate conditions. Ideal Bike Characteristics: xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx If this is the kind of riding you want your new bike to excel at, email us and we’ll match a Honey Bike for you.
