Finally getting bike, just wanted to share!

I finally ordered my bike, and will hopefully have it in a couple of days!

After months of researching, being indecisive, and figuring out funds, I decided to just bite the bullet and go for it. I know I won't have much time left to ride, but I just didn't want to miss out on the nice fall weather and have to wait through the ridiculously long winter. I didn't get the color I had in mind, but I don't hate it how it looks (it's white) and it's a relatively minor detail compared to everything else.

I'm very excited and just felt like sharing. Also wanted to say thanks.. I've been a bit of a lurker trying to learn everything that I could, and while I may have felt a bit overwhelmed by how much there is to learn, I'm glad I learned at least a little!

Glad you found a bike. With any luck you'll still get a few really nice rides in before it gets too cold - it's definitely what I'm trying to do.

Did you get the Cannondale Althea 3? Nice bike. Congrats. The white looks much nicer than the black/purple.
