New Bike

I have been wanting a new bike since I started riding last fall. Today, I brought home a new 2014 Fuji Sportif 2.5. I will post some pics this evening.

Cool, congratulations.

Hope on this trail and see how it does. Is that right? 200 miles out and back if you go all the way on the continuation path into Alabama? That's outstanding.

TH,

I have ridden parts of that trail a few times. It is a nice change of pace from the somewhat hilly area I live in. I hope to ride it on Saturday. Yes it is 200 miles out and back.

LBS has a 2013 2.5 (looks like equiv model was a 1.7c in 2013?) about my size, but I hate to get painted into a 7 speed corner :-)....the 2013 is a real pretty blue bike though :-). I'm going to be buying in October, looking at the 1.3 really hard but the White color is not making me jump up and down :-).
