My first time to this forum was yesterday. I came looking for what people had to say about various womens hybrid or comfort bikes. Truly helpful.
We ended up getting a Giant Cypress for my girlfriend yesterday evening and she's now joining the cycling world (she has only ever riden a bike a few times in her life). It was wonderful watching her excitement, and it was great watching her enjoy herself, as up to last night she had a fear of bikes; she was hit by a car at a young age, i believe the second or third time ever on a bike.
So, I'm 28 living and working in Toronto Canada. I've always been a cycling enthusiast, though my bike hasn't left my basement for the past two years. It's come time to throw my car keys aside and start peddling again.
I own two bikes. One very old Raleigh mountain bike which I use to boot around the city and which I used as my main bike when I worked as a courier when I was about 20. My other bike is a full suspension Cannondale, about 7 years old, and at the moment can't recall the model name.
I don't trail ride much anymore, so am hoping to soon pick up one of those snazy hybrid bikes. I understand the purists don't see much use for them, but I think they're fabulous.
That's all for now folks. I'm at work so I have to keep it short.
