Well, here she is!

I finally did it. I finally went out and bought my first road bike. Thanks to a little input from fellow clydes.

I test rode several different ones and finally decided that this was the one. Its the 2010 model, I went back and forth between that and the '09 for a while but this seems to be a better bike. Now if the weather would cooperate, maybe I wouldn't just have to sit here and stare at it!

The thumbnail looks good, but I'm afraid we're gonna need some actual pics of the actual bike in the real world.

I know, I know. The weather really sucks here right now with the snow and all. When it dries out I will post a better picture.

Yea, lot's of crappy weather everywhere. We seem to be in rainy season, but at least there are no mudslides.

At least we seem to be warming up some.

Please make sure you know your local speed limits.
Fast Bike. Practice using the brakes.

Nice bike.

Is that how much snow that you really have? I will be out there in about a month. I was hoping to rent a bike to ride around the boardwalk.

No, it's not that bad. It has already started melting and is just about gone. Weather should be nice by the time you get here.
