Fall Cunningham ride

Posted: November 13th, 2010 | Author: | Filed under: bicycles | 1 Comment »

It was a beautiful day today in NYC and I took the opportunity to take my Cunningham Expedition out for a ride.  I continue to tweak the bike to get it dialed and the bike is one of my favorites.

Charlie conceived of the Expedition as a bike to do everything.  The bike gives you enough mountainbike to enjoy some singletrack, but the bike is at home on the road too.  A neat, subtle detail is that the front wheel is larger than the rear wheel – 27″ and 700C respectively.  The idea is to provide a better balance for the rotating mass.

I enjoyed a little over three hours in the saddle today, mixing up the ride with segments on 9W, River Road and the dirt paths and rocky trails that are accessible from both.
