I'm stopping by the LBS on my way home today to order my Surly X-Check. Originally I was going to get an LHT, but after my fitting session over the weekend, the X-Check is a much better bike for me. I'll post pictures of it when it comes in.
I'm going to give my old commuter bike to the guy at the video store as a Christmas present. He offered to buy it, since his last bike was a rusty p.o.s. since he got it, and it finally fell apart.
I wanted to thank everyone on the Clydesdale forum for the encouragement I get here, the helpful advice, and for making me really enjoy riding. (I had a poor encounter on another forum, and I thought that I should just let people here know that I really appreciate everyone.)
