Traumatic, too. Neither one for me!
Son is getting married in the spring, so managed to find a good deal on a bike for him that is a 2011 model, and a 2013 model of the same thing for his bride. Very nice bikes for the money - the Giant Escape. Should give the kids some inexpensive fun, will be including a bike rack in the gift package. Nice to be able to pick up something for them from the LBS.
