A while back I posted that I got the OK from the old lady to get a new bike. I finally got a Raleigh Passage 4.5. Took it for its maiden voyage today, even though it was 30 degrees, windy and blustery. I love it. It is so much easier riding on the road than my Trek mtb. I do a lot of off-roading, so I'll keep the Trek for that, but if its dry out and I'm going on pavement I'll take the Raleigh.
I looked at Treks, Fujis, and Raleighs. I settled on the Raleigh because it has the Shimano shifters and it seemed to have better built parts. Now we just need some nice weather.
