Yep, nice looking bike there. I think my giro 20 would be jealous too. I'm sure you'll get lots of happy miles from that ride!

Out fishing with Annie on his lap, a cigar in one hand and a ginger ale in the other, watching the sunset.

That would be cool! AFAIK, I've got the only 'bent in Burien. At least the only one I've seen.

Angle Lake Cyclery down on Highway 99 is your LBS for 'bent needs!

Hey Tom,

Yeah, I DO have that grin! I especially LOVE that color I chose along with the no-pain riding.
Unfortunately, I am working a bit today, so I probably don't get to ride much until tomorrow or
later in the week. AND, on top of it all, it's raining! Ya just don't wanna make that new ride
all yucky in the first week!
