    I'm sooo weak!

    I saw this bike on clearance and had to buy it. Maybe if I took up smoking at least I'd get change back.
    PS:link to my bike photos also

    Currently riding an MTB with a split personality - commuting, touring, riding for the sake of riding, on or off road :)

    This is my alternating commuter. It was only $349 new. Sora equipped with an aluminum frame.

    Pros: Great Price, aero rims, aluminum frame, Sora(at this price), good colors, just plain works good.

    Cons: brake pads are mush (easily replaced), seat a little stiff (replaced it with a softer one I had yesterday.)

    Bottom line: daily driver, charity rider, Iron Horse built a good bike and this one is $250 under priced, comparable bikes Trek 1000 and Giant OCR3.


    (I saw a entry level lemond all Sora equipped for $999, wasn't sure if they were charging for the name or the frame, or maybe they have a big light bill. Good bike but under equipped for the price, be like paying 50K for a mercedes with a 4 banger, no air, and roll down windows)

    I don't ride after dark and working at a HS I wouldn't wanna get beat up for being a geek or whatever it is they call people like me.

    PS: put the mountain tires back on the bike and dropped 2-4mph in speed.
