I definitely like it! The Pilot 1.2 has been updated a bit from what's shown on the website. It has a paired spoke wheel instead of the ones shown in the website image. I don't remember the position indicators on the shifters but I could have missed them when I demo'd the bike. The seat (as someone warned me) isn't the most comfortable but I'll either get used to it or change it out. I was only able to ride for about 45 minutes before it got dark but with the hills I live around, that was enough to shift through most of the gears more than once.
What's the deal with helmuts? At Sports Chalet, they were $80-100 but the same make (Bell) with what looked like the same level of protection but less areodynamic-looking at Big 5 was $25. I'm not out to impress so I bought the $25 one.
I'm gonna want a cycle computer mostly to keep track of distance traveled. Of course the more I looked at different models the more features I wanted. My buddy likes his HR1000 and recommended it but as an IT geek, it bothers me that I can't upload data. I've been looking at the Polar CS200cad but reviews here are all over the place. Anyway, a cycle computer will be my next purchase.
As luck would have it, I'll be out of town from Sun-Fri for the next 2 weeks (at least) for work so I'm not gonna get to ride a lot.
The LBS owner said to bring it back for adjustment after about 10 rides. I think I'll drive to some flatland and ride tomorrow.
