yep. i have either been riding or it was to cold all of yesterday. i would ride for awhile, go in because of the cold, than come back out

i haven't even had time to take off the reflectors and chainguard. but this will definitely go in the next couple days.

my only complaint is that the brakes aren't that good. but thats ok. they still stop and i've never had a bike with good brakes (but my friend has a cheap schwinn walmart bike and the bike stops on a dime)

not to be off-topic but how do u have a disposable digital camera? you probably have a film camera and chose the option to put it on a CD
anyways theres pics of his bike on the internet if its the 2005
