    Repost your first post

    This was my first post on BikeForums:

It had belonged to her daughter-in-law's father who had recently passed away. He apparently bought it and never rode it. In the picture you can still see the price tags on the handlebars, and it still has the nubbies on the tires. It's like it came out of a time capsule!

    Is that awesome or what?
    What was yours?

    I can't remember my first post. However, knowing me, it was probably a thoughtful and deeply profound statement.

    I have feelings and stuff.

    I have stuff but no feelings, so expect no apology. It wouldn't be sincere anyway.

    Nah. I'm just Couch now. There is no Incident worth having to dish out baby carrots. Baby carrots are rabbit food and well, I'm afraid of rabbits.

    That's just not fair, the search ends at 50 pages for my posts and that only goes to late 2010.

    Isn't one of the advanced search options to put them ascending/descending order by date?

    I suggest screaming at the computer. Have you tried that yet? The only problem is, if you have an Inge, she may just bite you.

I would only be doing about 9 miles daily, mostly on a rail-trail. Think I'm leaning towards the Kona, even though the cromo frame would take more tlc over the long haul. The Marin would be faster (based upon the gearing), but I think the Kona would make an excellent beater, if and when I get another bike (probably the Giant FCR3). Any body with real world experience with either one?
    The Marin comes with free lifetime maintainenceand optional $20 'Flat Protection Plan'-get a flat, they fix/replace/install for free.
    The Kona dealer would give me a yr, but would also get me in quicker for service, because he knows it will be my main mode of transport.
