Hey Scott, I am in Chatham Township

Do you ever bike around the swamp loop? I hear it is one of most popular routes in he area. If you do, you go right by my house. ( Yellow house, white Argosy ) There are always groups going by. Not the safest bike trail for kids. Mostly " teams " with fancy high tech racing clothes.

Funny. I have done the swamp loop probably 100's of times. Never seen an Argosy.

Then again, I'm one of those guys with the fancy high tech racing bikes working my *ss off to rotate through a pace line. Not a lot of time for sightseeing!

As an bike rider you know that one must have at least 4 different types of bikes to feel completely equiped. However, for around the camp ground and maybe a little out on the road I would would go with a cross bike or light duty mountain bike. Keep a narrower set of tires with smoother tread for the pavement and a fatter set with some tread for gravel to adjust to conditions.

Not a teen any more but sure do wear and appreciate the "FHTRC's". After a couple hours or so in the saddle one really comes to appreciate the technology that goes into them. Luvin the comfort.

Thanks everyone. I will investigate and report back. This is for full timing so space is an issue. I will be lucky to bring a bike let alone multiple bikes, multiple wheelsets, or a trike!

Time to ride some fat bikes.

I'm a little biased toward the fatbikes if you couldn't tell. They are the most comfortable and versatile bike out there in my opinion. Run the tire pressure any where from 3psi on sand/snow to 15psi for road. Sand, mud, snow, all mountain, downhill, cross country, they do it all, slowly, but they do it.

I've put over 3000 miles on my Salsa the last year and a half, it is my go to bike. My second choice is my rigid 29er but that's only when the rides are over 50 miles or so of road involved with some mountain trails.

Get one or two or four, you won't regret it!

If I was to go full time today I would take my touring bike. With 700X32 tires it will take me any where I would want to go.

Like you, I've got several higher end bikes, although I tilt toward the mountain bike side of the cycling world. For traveling on non-bike focused trips, I find that my carbon hardtail (geared) with light 1.9" MTB tires is the most flexible. I can ride comfortably on the road (I've even joined less serious groups on road rides on it), but it has no problems getting onto rough trails, and it rips on singletrack. It weighs sub-20#. I was considering a cyclocross bike, but since I don't race, it seemed that this had fewer compromises to race rules (at the time, CC bikes still didn't have discs, for instance).

I will add my vote for the bent. I had a very nice "comfort bike", hurt my sitz bones, back, wrists, and neck to ride it. Not so young anymore. Bought a bent trike, Catrike Recumbent Trikes and have been enjoying riding again. Expensive, but it is comfortable, it folds and will fit in the back of the Jeep Wrangler.

I have been restoring 2 older Klein Attitude mountain bikes to take camping with us. One is full XT for me the other is LX for the wife. The pics really do not do justice to these frames, the paint work is amazing.

Figured if we are towing an aluminum trailer, then some classic aluminum bikes were the only way to go!

You may notice a few other restored Kleins in the background.... It is a slight problem

I understand the aluminum bike addiction. We had 5 vintage Cannondales, including a tandem in our stable before downsizing to just one (the others replaced by aluminum recumbent and Trek.). The 'dales were knockoffs of the Klein design and were involved in a nasty patent lawsuit if I remember correctly.
