Flat bar road bike.

I have a 2008 Giant FCR1 it's a flat bar road bike it was my first bike even though it is still new. I got the bug quick and bought a drop bar bike which I love. Anwway got my FCR out about 3 weeks ago and it had some sound comming from the crank when I was in a climb. Took it to the shop long story short they had to send the crank back to shimano. Which turned out to be a nice upgrade from 105 to ultigra and I paid nothing. The best kind of upgrsde. So I get it back and go ride. I love this bike it is fast rides great CF fork and seat post. Handels verry well shifts like a dream makes me wander what I was thinking. Don't get me wrong I love my new bike but I still love the old one.

That's quite a nice deal you got for that "old" bike.

The old one is like the first one of anything.... first car, first love, first bike. I still love mine too.

Or the one we left at home. I think they are ALL my favorite.
