    I'm addicted...

    Buying my Diamondback Trace Comp is probably the best thing that has ever happened to me. I find myself fidgeting when I am at home sitting on the couch. I desperately look around my house for something that could use replenishing just for an excuse to ride to the store. To be able to ride the streets and bike paths, to being able to leave the road for a quick stint in the woods is something I achieve much joy doing. Knowing that I'm riding along at 24 mph under my own power is an absolute marvel. I find myself zigzagging from side to side while riding just to feel the bike reacting underneath me. Don't know why I had to share, but I'm on cloud nine after getting back from a ride and feel as if I have to shout it from the rooftops how awesome biking is. Anyone else hooked?

    We all love it. That's why we're here on this forum.

    Don't you need to go and pickup some bread?

    Enjoy the hell out of it!

    I also find myself fidgeting when im at home thinking I should be riding. It was difficult to stay home Sunday to watch football instead of my normal riding. And I LOVE football! My bigger problem tho, is I keep extending my rides longer and longer. Its sad that the 6 mile quick ride around the lake I live on is not as satisfying as it once was. Doing my normal favorite routes that are 33 and 40 miles rides are the best, but I have to find the time between work/family and commitments and drive 25 to 40 min to get to them. Getting back to the OP saying how hooked and awesome cycling is, I could'nt agree more!

    You bet...the very thought of going out on either bike is exciting. Now that I think about it the fun was there long ago on a single speed Schwinn.
