riding a Dancelli for the first time
Hello to you all.
I am also one of the new ones here, so please let me introduce myself a little.
i have been enjoying biking most of my life, and i have had many kinds of bikes, but never ever a road bike. Recently i got an obsession with having a road bike after having seen my best friend buying a road bike spontaneously from the shop. A used Pinarello veneto- and i tell you- it looks great!!! Road bikes are beautiful-wow.
so i was sharing my dream about getting one too- since i had never had one- and what a surprise- my friend comes to my house with a road bike for me- he had found one- also used, a really nice Dancelli (which i dont know so much about- anyone here???)-it just looks super. I get on the bike and feel a bit awkward on it- it is so different from what im used too- i start cycling and i find myself in wonder why i cannot really bike it (!) it is so reactive and fast- almost aggressive. And the feeling of having to 'bend' down to hold the drop down handle bars is also strange to me..... but i want to ride it!!!! i want to enjoy the feeling of riding this beautiful road bike- please someone tell me that i just have to keep on trying and trying in order to control the bike- because at the moment i am a bit scared of it :-)
and thanks a bunch
