I'm like a little kid at Christmas time. Just before the holidays my wife and I decided to replace our trusty 95 Mongoose Crossway 850's with something a little newer. The Crossways now have around 30,000 miles or so and are starting to need more work each year. So after trying out different bikes we decided on a Giant. It helped that the LBS is fantastic and also a Giant dealer. He didn't have any of the model we wanted in stock so they needed to be ordered. The Giant warehouse was shut down during the holidays so the bikes were shipped on the 3rd. Well I received a call..... ok I called the shop to find the bikes showed up today. The good news is that he is quite busy so the shop should be in business for a while. The bad news is I will have to wait until Weds. to get my hands on the new ride. Oh well. We took mine out of the box just to see the frame. I can't believe how light it they are. Looking forward to tomorrow Here's an out of the box type shot. More to follow later in the week.
