    I got a bike!

    Well, the boyfriend and I spent the day visiting seemingly every bike shop on god's green earth ... and I came home with a new set of wheels!!!!

    Ended up with the Stumpjumper hardtail with disc breaks in black. The black is taking some getting used to (although its growing on me - I was hoping for a color a little girlier ) but other than that I LOVE the way it rides and feels!!!!!

    Tomorrow I will hit the trails for the first time in a while ... it might not be pretty ... but I'm sure it will be FUN!!!!!!!!!

    Thanks for all the suggestions!

    If you can't be a good example, then you'll just have to be a horrible warning.

    I love your bike. I just couldn't swing it when I was shopping, though.

    Excellent purchase!

    just remember, black paint is lighter than pink or purple.
