Okay, so yesterday I finally had the chance to go out and test ride my new bike. Which is a 2010 Fuji Absolute 2.0. The outside temperature was 30 F. I haven't rode a bike since past fall and never rode it in this kind of temperature. Usually ride when it's above 65 F.
Somehow when I was riding the bike. I felt tired very fast. Especially going uphill. Is it because it was cold? Or was it because I haven't rode a bike for the past 3 months or so? Or is it the bike? For the past month or so, I've been exercising my legs with my wife's home exercise bike.
The right side of the V brake did kind of touch slightly or almost touch the front rim. Could that be the cause? I did, when I got home. Adjusted the brake and got it to where I wanted.
Was wondering that it could just be the bike and was thinking of selling it and get a 2010 Jamis Coda Sport. The Jamis and the Fuji are about the same. Just that the Fuji have Shimano Tiagra rear derailleur, 12-25 T and 30/42/52 T crank set and the Jamis have Shimano Deore rear derailleur, 11-32 T and a 48/36/26 crank set.
I've seen some guy riding a Surly while I was driving one time and he seem to have no problem going uphill. That bike was pretty fast for going up hill. I want a bike like that.
