My new ride

And she's MUCH cooler than Datajunkie's Randonee!

Actually, I like the color better but mine is sitting next to a tarmac. Consequently, raising its coolness by a factor of 100. Just ignore the fact that it needs a new chain, cables, bar wrap, and is completely covered in dirt.

My wife can't even get her leg over my old bike! *laughs*

I've already promised her this one when I upgrade!

Did you see how big my other bike was? *laughs* No, she's not little, but her inseam is shorter than mine, even though we're both the same height.

Anyway, she's interested in shorter recreational rides... she doesn't have any desire to do 300 mile+ rides. Maybe if we could get her a nicer bike she'd be more interested in longer rides.

Anyway, yes, we both had a great time, and will probably be out again together this Sunday.

I didn't pay attention to the height of your last bike. Have fun on Sunday, where are you thinking of taking her??

Divorce court if he doesn't recant the little line.
Every woman is "little" irregardless of actual size.

Heh. I was talking about her height. Dork.

Snowy: Dunno where we're going yet... We'll have to play it by ear I guess. She's more scared of traffic than a certain mountain biker I know, so we tend to avoid the streets as much as possible, but may take the bus someplace and ride on the bike paths.
