been riding for 45 years.
used to commute to NYC from Staten Island.
great fun until I realized I could get killed pretty easily battling with taxis.
now I ride a 1995 GT Avalanche to my office once or twice a week.
Bought a 2001 Specialized Sirrus Comp this week and don't like the ride as well as the GT.
Will put it up for sale when they upgrade my account.
Listed on craigslist now.
