Cannondale Quick 4

Well I did it. I picked up the Cannondale Quick 4 today after work. I have only rode it about a mile so far. I will head back out in a few. Swapped the seat right away and put a super flash on the back end to start. Now I gotta find a good helmet. Thanks for all the help=)

You're going to need a less squishy seat in a bit. Looks good, put a quick few hundred miles on it!

I still have the stock seat, but for now it was killing me. We shall see what time brings. I have a few miles on it now and I am just a little sore in the legs. Rain came today so maybe this weekend I can get a nice ride in.

You're going to get wet anyway, ride in the rain! (Disclaimer: I haven't ridden my bike in a week, been on travel. I've been forced to run. God I hate running.)

Yeah we have hit and miss severe weather. I'll just wait it out until Friday afternoon at least. North Alabama is getting a good soaking today.
