I want some MOAR!!

today I was tired of trying to fiddle a rack on the back on my bike without success and my parents got tired of me trying stuff and my father asked me if I wanted to go and check for a new bike, maybe.

Woah, as sixtyfiver and medic65 knows, I have a cheap bike that can act as a really good anchor though. and at one of the two shops, One guy asked me if I wanted to try a bike (was a cyclocross bike dunno think the bike was called tricross or something like that) My first time on a bike with a drop bar and the high tech stuff... he placed some flat pedals tuned it averagely and let me test it.

Oh my god O_O. the speed was crazy I was merely able to control myself from just ridding away in another town
the bike was riding as smooth as my mtb and it was so damn light and fast.

At some point, I decided I wanted to push the bike as fast as I could, and I was doing it fairly well until my jeans got stucked in the gears xD was easy to get out of this situation but it totally ripped my jeans but man the speed I'd kill a few other jeans just for that feeling

Rofl, now I'm hooked... I WANT MOAR

You can't spell "is", "little", "something", "about", and you use "lol", but you can spell "gratification" and use it in a setence?

I am so old.
