I have been accused recently of being a roadie. I can understand. Someone mentioned that it boils down to percentage of time spent on the road bike vs the mountain bike. I disagree. I do spend a lot of time on my Foundry Ratchet, and I do that with purpose. I don't have the time and resources at this point to get out in the woods a lot. In fact, except for the Trips For Kids WNC rides this summer, I rarely get to spend time in the woods on knobby tires. The Foundry is a "tool, not a trophy" and I treat it as such. I roll out the front door and get a ride in, and hopefully come back stronger, and when the time is right, I get to take my mountain steed to the woods for a run!
I might ride the road a lot, but I would consider myself to be a mountain biker at heart....but in the end, really, who cares? We are all out there enjoying the ride!
