    Jon and Siu had a new years resolution to lose weight

    We have an agreement, so that in the summer we can buy these road bikes, and ride them without breaking them!

    We were thinking if we both get into road riding, by summer we might get some kona cyclo bikes. Whatcha thunk?

    I like this one because it's the cheapest.

    Specs For jake

    They are not roadies, they are cross bikes. AKA Urban Mountain Bikes.


    But who says we are really getting them? We are just dreaming, that's all.

    In order to do that, I'll have to sell Jon's body. So getting the bike might take a while.

    Welcome to the dark side.

    Kudos on the health regimen! That's always cool.

    I'm goin' shoppin' for a road bike soon, but one that I can use in TT, until I buy a real TT bike. I'll post pics along the way of my odyssey, if you guys will. Deal? Jon? Siu?

    We gotta at least believe we might get them for awhile before we abandon hope. As for selling my body. I charge 100 per night on the magical love boat. We'll get those bikes in like 2 weeks at that rate.

    haha...more like road bikes on steroids. The similarities like more towards the roadie

    That said, I have thought about getting one at some point, purely for conditioning. Instead I bought an eliptical. Good times

    I'm also pondering the possibilities. Both daughters work at a local sporting goods store with a nice little bike shop. It turns out they can pro-deal bikes. Usually 20% less than half MSRP.

    Oh don't tell us that. I'll have to keep Jon on the streets at least 12 hours per nite now, just to get ours as fast as you'll get yours.

    I've gotten in maybe 7 or 8 rides on my new bike.

    I must say for a nice cardio workout on the road, something lighter and slimmer would be nice.

    Us Yoopers take that as a complement. We are thrifty and know how to save money.

    Oh, and just for the record: If someone gave me a road bike for free, I would gladly ride it. Not as much as my mountain bike. But I would never spend money on one (until I get a decent job and I'm rollin' in dough).

    It's a road bike with semi-knobby tires.

    Grooved tires, but also the stem is different. It has a mtb style stem. Plus of course the frame geometry is different.

    Now all you need is the Garmin Edge 305 package.... Oohhhhh. <whispering this gently into Jon and Siu's ears as they sleep> Once you have this, you will be on the dark side with Vega forever.
