Yeah it got me pumped up so I jumped on my bike which I hadn't been on in approx 2.5 years and did a couple appts and rode around, maybe 8 or 10 miles, lordy lordy it was soooo much fun, had a peak experience for sure. Psyched to go out early AM next Saturday and go up into the local woods area.

Had my road bike back after spending a day messing about with wheels, freehubs and everything else. Nightmare.
Went out and did 65km. Was great fun and surprised how much I'd missed it after only Mountain biking for a month

Do you prefer one over the other or are you just happy to have both road and mountain at your disposal

Good question. I got the Road bike in lockdown and loved going out and exploring. Never had a road bike before and probably not ridden any bike for 20 years.
I bought the Mountain bike to have something that I could go out with the girls on and found it was quite nice just going out on different terrain and across fields.
Glad I didn't get a better mountain bike to be honest as I would try jumping off stuff and probably wipe myself out. If I was given a tonne of cash and could buy a dream bike I'd get a road bike so probably lean towards that
