Here She is... (new bike)

My brand new 08 GF Kaitai. I just brought her home today and took her for a short spin of 6 miles on the lakefront (Chicago). So far a very different ride... I'm used to a 26" wheel ride. This is the 1st time I've been on a 700c bike since the mid 80's (10 speed).

Wow, I dig it! The Fisher hybrids are some VERY nice looking rides, I've always wanted one, but never had a good excuse to get one . The best part, apparently you can easily fit 29er MTB tires on 'em. Talk about versatile!
