Really wonderful ride today on my commute
Nothing hurt :thumb: The seat didn't slide down, the wheel was running smooth with no problems like I have been having. I even wore bike shorts. :) The seat was at a perfect height so my legs didn't cramp. My hands didn't numb up because I put a shorter stem that's adjustable too. And all these things I learned from you guys. On my 1st day here I learned how to get off and on a bike without depending on the curbs. I used hand signals today. :eek: I'm not getting everything smooth but know every time I ride I'll get a little better. So thanks everyone for making this day go (at least my riding)smoothly. Now if I could just stick to my diet :o

Good to hear! I am not a fan of painful rides. :)

RIDER DOWN - Symptoms - enjoying commute - That means going to work?

Don't use that dirty word.

Don't worry about the diet... I think you will be surprised by riding, and upping mileage, the weight will fall off. Plus exercise is a good diet controller.

Enjoy your rides, I know I couldn't get through a week without getting on my bike!
