Hello obeygiant, it sounds as if you are fond of Giant brand bikes...I don't think I can help with being an alcoholic, but I would imagine that it would be hard to drink a lot and remain coherent enough to ride a bike without killing yourself...

Don't know what else to tell you...but welcome to Bike Forums .

Hi there, switching from alcoholaddiction to bikeaddiction is a very, very good idea. In stead of your liver it is your quads that grow. Happy riding, and go with the road bike, that extra speed is just wonderful.

If you come ever to the netherlands you will see how drunk you can be but still be able to cycle. I think it's easier than walking properly.
