Loving my new bike

I realized I needed a bike to keep up wit my 7 year old son who was growing impatient driving back and forth in front of the house. I initially shopped hybrids and bought a Trek FX7.3. After driving for a week around the neighbourhood, I felt as if my teeth were going come out due to its jarring ride. After heading back to the LBS and trying the carbon-fork options and doing more research, I ended up taking back the FX moving to Crossrip Elite. In addition to chasing my son around, I've been sneaking out early mornings and racking-up mileage on the trails. I'm having a real hoot!
