#30DaysofBiking: Rainy Day Ride to the Coffee Shop

Damp. Damn Damp.

Coffee. Hot Coffee.

Rainy days are slow days at the bike shop. It's a different story at the coffee shop.

Couple questions.

How is the Urbana in the rain? I heard even w fenders it throws up water in you face,

Do you think the frame is big enough for tall people? I'm 6'4 and interested in this bike.

Ideally the front fender would extend further forward but I haven't found the spray from the front wheel to be much of an issue. The Urbana is my favorite bike to take out in the rain, it's rock solid and I don't have to worry about potholes.

Size-wise, the Urbana is pretty darn adaptable. I'm pretty sure you could get the seat high enough for your legs and you can rotate the BMX-style bars forward to open up the cockpit.
