    Wife is getting a road bike!!!

    I am sooooooooooooooooooo happppppy! We will have a +1 in the house. he he he ....

    After I rode the metric today, I came home and my wife was happy that we were going shopping for a bike tomorrow (sunday). I have been struggling the past two weeks on where to take her shopping. The bike shop I really like and that is so nice and helpful here sells Trek but I and my family have always owned Giants but the best Giant dealership is 2 plus hours. They are OK to deal with. I got both my Giants there but had to go back a few times and the drive was a killer as far as time went.

    So I called my buddy up to see if he was working at the local shop and he was and I brought my wife in there otday after my ride. She got to try some bikes and picked the Trek Lexa SLX. She ordered it and it comes next week.

    I am happpppy!

    Looks like a good bike except for the tires. I had the R1's on my Madone and they didn't last long. I didn't wear them out but they cut real easy. Both tires were done in by small limestone rocks on top of asphalt.

    Congratulations! I hope she enjoys it. And that the two of you have many enjoyable rides together.

    I've been eying a Look 566, last year's model on sale. My husband was all for me getting a new road bike, and was encouraging me to go with carbon ....then he watched me test riding it and joked about how maybe I shouldn't get it as I was already dropping him on some hills. I think he's kidding...
