"You can use it without the bash.  You would need shorter crank bolts however as it is just like running a double.  I have a similar setup like you mention on my wife's bike with a Sugino XD. The BB is sealed bearings.  "

As far as Elroy-Sparta, my friend went there via Madison in 2009.  Easy to take the bus to UW Madison and then head up the road from that point.  Consult the state maps for more details.

Hey Dave,

We have over 5,000 of the total 80,000 sq ft dedicated to MTB, commuter, and cross. There will be a great selection from Trek, Salsa and Felt. There are literally thousands of bike to choose from. Anything regarding to specific inventory you have in mind?

At 6:36pm on March 12, 2014, Todd Boring said…

Hey Dave........Yes, that was me.

I have a couple of bikes in the 55-56 range.......not really commuters though. A Centurion Ironman and a Club Fuji. No rack eyelets or room for fenders. I do have some MTB frames that might work for you, 4130 grade.

Yes, there will be several bikes that you and your family can try.
