I picked up my bike today and it's great ! I love it. Got lots of comments on it at my university classe today which was pretty cool too - small class so we can bring our bikes in to the classroom.
I love the disk brakes and the ride is great - just sucks up bumps like nothing and that is only on the shi**y roads around here. Can't wait to try it off roading. The disk brakes are great so far and are already breaking in great. I rode it for about 4 hours today with lots of stops and really noticed an improvement by the end of the ride.
I am getting my front rotor changed to an 8" as my boyfriend wants to ride it too - should I let him ?! :-) LOL...maybe not.
The only thing that I thought was weird is this guy in class said - "oh disk brakes, those are so hard to use when they're broken in " What's hard about them ?You squeeze the brakes and you stop. Is there something that I don't know
at this early stage or is the guy just a loser who doesn't know how to ride a bike ?
Anyway, thanks for all your help and comments before I bought it. I know now that I made the right decision.
