Two wheels too short.
Many riders say you should leave the technology home when you hit the road on two wheels. Forget the phone, the GPS, and all the electronic leashes of modern society.

Too often, I see discussions about beginner bikes centered around how much power a certain bike has or “That’s way too fast for a beginner!” and in my experience, there’s so much more to it than that, so I decided to discuss it a… »
