Intro here - Central NJ

So, i bought a used Giant Cypress about 6 months ago. I use it on recreational trails [my favorite being and D & R canal Trail] and i use it to commute to school/work (unless the weather is stormy/rainy).
I love my bike, even though its kinda big - (a Medium Frame with 28 in wheels/tires on and i m 5'7'')
I bent both wheels before trying to go up a really steep incline [+52.4ft elevation gain], but i m happy that they re fixed, although i was told that if i bend the rear one again i ll have to buy another wheel (instead of just fixing it)

Good to hear that you are enjoying your bike. Post some pictures of your bike, yourself and the terrain you ride. Its always fun to see what you are doing. Hey here from Nevada.
