New Ride

I know y'all have seen bikes before but, this one is mine.

Note I am a very short person and the wife took these while I was sitting on the bike.





Now to log some miles.

A wooden canoe and a bike. Nice combination IMHO. And, don't worry; if you keep taking your vitamins, you'll get taller.

Nice bike and I love that the helmet is matching

You might need a smaller helmet so you can see.

I see you have your priorities straight...................New Bike in the driveway sitting near the green growth springing up through the asphault unmolested. You are so lucky to not be one of those who would have killed it before riding. Don't ever change.

+1.

I've had my new bike out in 25 degrees, certainly it looks like riding weather in your neck of the woods.

I have one just like that...cracked with a weed in the middle. I meant the driveway. Just joking, but its the truth.

Enjoy the bike. Pretty soon you'll be wanted skinnier tires, clipless pedals, lights for night riding, new clothes, extra parts, cassettes, etc. There is really no end to it.

Remember this rule. If anyone asks, the bike cost $299. All bikes cost $299 if anyone outside of the cult inquires. Tandems cost $499.
