My New Ride!

So I went to my LBS the other day to go look at a Trek 7.2 and ended up falling in love with a Gary Fisher Bodega. Snatched it up and love it. Great looking and great to ride. Slapped a new seat on now and it is amazing!

Congratulations! I've never heard of the Bodega but it looks like a great go anywhere bike. Enjoy!

Do I see a place for a water bottle cage beneath the downtube? Very nice.

Looks good. The mounts on the bottom are probably meant for a pump.
LOVE the option to upgrade to disc!

Pump or bottle - either should work. Or both, for that matter. Looks like there's plenty of clearance, and downtube under-mount water bottles are not uncommon on many longer-wheelbase bikes.

Congrats on the new Trek! My brother-n-law has that bike too. Very nice one indeed.
