Very helpful video. I always questioned why a front fork with a suspension is needed.

Alex Rau says:

Very helpful video, but I still have a question or two on choosing the right bike for me. My commute is 9-10 miles on back roads that are paved, crossing rail road tracks, and up hill climbs. I biked a lot in college, but have gotten out of it. However looking to get back into it, because of the help it provides for training for Spartan Races and travel to work.

What suggestion of bikes do you have based on those conditions? Like a specific brand?

Tread is unnecessary on a bike tyre for wet roads. Tyre tread’s only only purpose is to displace water to prevent aquaplaning. Aquaplaning is impossible for a bicycle. The best tyre for road use is the one with most rubber (because that is where the grip is) in contact with the tarmac, ie a slick.

Great video! – I’m more of a pathway kind of rider myself, but these tips pretty much apply there as well – didn’t get a good look at the tires you showed there…WTB’s..”.thick slicks” I presume? – My personal favorite!
