Back on the Roll

I decided to give my Specialized Roll another try .
I raised the saddle and moved it forward . This seems to work and after riding six miles today , my knees feel no worse than if I had ridden one of my other bikes .
Switched the chainring to a 30 tooth to make it a hill climber .
If this works out , Iíll be willing to invest in a new wheelset with a cassette instead of a freewheel. And some different tires .
Ive always like the looks of the Roll frame .

Rode my Roll this morning .
For it to have such big tires , it’s surprisingly light .
Put 45# in the front tire and 50# in the rear and it rolls pretty good too .
Think I’ll add it to the rotation.

Iíve never ridden one. They do seem like nice bikes.

Looks like the geometry of a cruiser with the lightweight of modern materials and diamond frame.
