My daughter and I went to the LBS today to shop for her Electra Townie. My only specification was it could not have coaster brakes - she's never used them. We ended up with a royal blue (color is important) 7 speed and she loves it.
While they were preparing her bike I was talking to the owner about a mountain bike for me. I tried a couple different sizes and brands but didn't see anything I really liked. The owner said he had one in the backroom he thought I would like. Well....it just took one look and a ride around the lot to know this was the one I came home with a Trek WSD 4300 in silver with light blue lettering. I had them install the Shimano M324 pedals so I can use platform or clip-in. Now I need to find someplace to ride this thing until they get the mountain bike park open this fall.
One of these days I'm going to buy a bike in something other than grey or black
