Different tasks can sometimes require different bikes.Of course, some bikes which are more versatile than others. I think the MKII is a very versatile bike.
There are many other applications for the MKII, but for now, I am using the bike for commuting to work when the weather is nasty (snow) out and for riding unpaved trails. Who knows what the future holds? :)
May be I will ride it more over the next few days, in hopes of getting some cooler temps around here.
