Ok so me and Siu decided to get together on monday and hang out.
We first met up and proceeded to drive to the asian food market. Siu needed to get some kind of plum candies(Chan Pui Moi) and I needed to get some strawberry panda cookies. Ya know, because I'm practically asian so of course I had to get the panda cookies.
After that I asked her if there were any sports stores around because I wanted to get her a knife for work. We went to REI and both ended up with a cool little knife, after we looked around.
The point of the day of course was to go test ride some roadies. We first went to mikes bikes and I test rode a trek 1500 and a giant TCR. Don't ask me the component spec because I can't remember. All in all I liked the giant ALOT better. Siu tried to get me to drop the coin on the bike right then, but I really didn't have the money to do it.
We then went to another bike shop no less than a minute down the road. We both actually test rode roadies there. She tried out a white specialized dolce elite and I test rode a specialized allez elite. Overall I think that we both didn't like the stiffness of the roadies. We were admiring the 1mm travel rubber inserts on the dolce elite. I was itching to get some air off a curb and actually tried to ride up two curbs at the end of the test ride and the curb stopped me.
