I keep having this thought that it’s time to consider a new commuter project bike, perhaps built around a steel frame like a Civia Bryant with an Alfine 11 IGH. It would be a fun project to document here on the blog, plus I’d learn some things in the process. The thing is, every time I think about selling my good ol’ LHT, I take pause and reconsider. I’ve got the bike sooo dialed in, and there’s really nothing I’d change at this point (save, perhaps, the addition of a hub generator), so I’m finding it very difficult to part with. Keeping it while adding another bike is pretty much out of the question at this time, both for financial reasons and a lack of space. And in any case, the bikes would be wholly redundant and I’m not one for more bikes for the sake of more bikes (I know, weird, huh?).
For fun, I thought I’d put it out there to my readers. Should I stay with the LHT and continue on with the process of refinement, or should I sell it and start from scratch with a new project bike? Just to be clear, I’m very interested in your input, but I still have to make my own decision on this one, regardless of the outcome of the poll. Many thanks!
