Chose a bike today and brought it home

Thank you to members who helped me work through some questions about buying another bike. While Iím very new to cycling, I find myself doing it daily, and needed something lighter and more comfortable than the older steel hybrid bike I have been using.

After going to a couple of LBSs, I ended up choosing a 2019 Specialized Diverge E5. I hadnít really planned on disc brakes, but this bike does have mechanical disc brakes. They do feel a little different from rim brakes, but I found myself quickly getting used to them on the test rides I took on the Diverge.

I am looking forward to breaking the bike in on my daily rides, even though they are pretty short right now (5-7 miles thus far,) mostly due to time constraints. I want to spend more time on the trails, and I think the Diverge will be nice for that.

Here are are some photos. Please excuse my garage.
