I stopped into the LBS this past weekend (Specialized/Giant Dealer) as they were having sale on clothing and wondered over to the bikes. I'm new to road bikes and have some back issues, so I've had serious doubts about getting down into the drops, but this weekend, my whole opinion changed. My new love is a Specialized Dolce Sport.
It was too snowy to take her out for a test ride, but just sitting on the bike, it really did feel like a dream and I can't WAIT to go back and give her an honest test drive. DH tells me that when tax money comes in, we can can, but I also plan on testing some other bikes too... I own a Trek now and want to check out the Lexa that's new for 2011 and designed for women. When we do this, I plan on getting a full fitting, so I'm really looking forward to Spring and the upcoming season.
Now, SNOW... Get out of here!!!
