Just came back from the LBS and put a deposit down on two new bikes.
1) GT Avalanche 2.0 - This bike will be used on the local trails. I upgraded the pedals to clipless.
2) Raleigh FT2 - This bike will be used to commute to work (11 miles round trip) as well as exercise/fun. I upgraded to clipless pedals and also am having lights, mirror, water cage & a seat bag mounted.
This was the first time I ever rode a real bike after only having my Toys R Us bike for the last 10 years. The difference was noticeable right away. Even the cheapest bike I rode today felt head and shoulders better then my current one.
Can't wait to pick them up!
