Well, normally we're pretty insistant on pics of new bikes, but you have stumbled upon an excellent "exception" clause.

Ride it till you can't go anymore, then take pics!

Welcome to the herd, the popcorn and punch are over by the floor pump.

Heya eraven. I'm a fellow noob clyde and got a Giant Cypress DX at the end of July. Love it! We're riding 8-10mi per night and it's perfect for that kind of riding.

Only problem I've had is loose spokes. Just did the LBS free 30d check up and had them re-true and tension everything, so I'm good to go for now!

Enjoy the new ride and welcome to the Clyde folder!
