Well it came! Yesterday I got my new Minoura 850R. I was so excited I set it up in my living room. I put about 10 minutes on it just to try it out. I am going to temporarily set it up in my upstairs bedroom and get started getting started.
I have to say it is quieter on the continentals than I was expecting. I have heard some horror stories about people not being able to hear themselves think. I am also happy with the amount of available resistance. I will get a good workout with it.
And the nicest thing of all, I am working out on MY bike, so when spring comes my behind will once again be accustomed to the seat. No More Spring Butt Aches, and no more loosing ground in the winter.
I know I have a long way to go to be back where I was 2 years ago, but I think I will be there before spring hits.
I have a good attitude now, and nothing is going to hold me back.
