im new, and i just bought a "concept" bike. (apparently)
hey guys, im new here. i used to ride 20 miles daily back in o5, going 25mph on my mountain bike. when your bike absorbs 1/2 or your momentum you build up calf muscles fast lol.
anyway, in late 05 i had my ankle screw up on me. to where i cant walk well, and i had to be pulled out of school and i have to be homeschooled. my cartalidge is diging a crater in my ankle, causing excrutiating pain to walk far. it probably doesnt help that i have size 14 1/2 feet either....
anyway, having just got my permit (turned 16 on the 7th) i drove my ma to an estate sale. they had a really nice looking bike. im not dumb when it comes to spotting a nice bike...he wants 75 for it... i take it on a test ride, and with the setup of the bike as long as im careful to not put stresss on my ankles, they dont hurt!!
so naturally i bought the bike. best $75 dollars i spent in my opnion. now heres the story i was told. the guys daughter is a pro cyclist for (or that goes to cant remember) MIT so she draggs her father to a bike show at MC Cormic place in chicago. she convinces him to buy this bike that "he rode once" wich it sure looks like.
anyway, back to the bike. its got a 4 speed hub shifter, im pretty sure its a titainum frame for some reason linear brakes scheng shin tires a pretty nice cargo rack and fenders. and its also got the old style handlebars that make you feel like you are driving a bus. anyway, ill try to get some pics up tommrow. i tried to take some tonight but they turned out like crap.
thanks for any info based on my vuage discription! lol
