It'd been almost 2 years since I'd last ridden a bike, my rollerblade wheels are rapidly disappearing, and gas prices are skyrocketing, soooo ... this morning I bought myself a bicycle! Here's a pic of my new (to me) toy / transportation:
2003 Rocky Mountain Stratos, specs as seen on this page, except I had the SPDs switched for flat pedals.
I spent nearly 2 hours on it today, and my legs are freakin' tired, but I love it! Sadly, the commute to the new job I'll hopefully be starting next month is about 17km (or 10.56 miles for the metrically challenged) and will probably prove too far to bike, but I'd expect it will be my primary summer transportation for everything else.
Anyway, so Hi folks, glad to find yet another friendly forum for yet another hobby. I swear there's a forum for talking to people who share your interest in damn near anything on the Internet.
