So glad to be retired now. On my last day of work (2 years ago, now), they came to me about an hour before my shift was to end, and told me I had to stay another 8 hours because there was no one to take my place. Smiled the whole time because I knew it would never happen again.

Wait - we're THIS far into this thread and nobody on Bike Forums has mentioned the spoke reflectors?...or the fact that the wrong side of the bike was pictured?...or that the pedals aren't perfectly lined up???

Nice bike! - good for you getting out for 18 miles.

Glad to see you're enjoying it! Little more fun than the old Schwinn, right?

I was able to ride 35 miles after work yesterday. I love long summer days!

Dittoes. Nice idyllic summertime photo. Where is it?

Generally it's no big deal, but then they will write about the conditions where they ride, but still give no indication of where that is.
