Back in the saddle - North of Boston
I'm David. My wife and I used to do a lot of biking before and just after we got married. Two boys later and we let it slide. We just bought the youngest a new bike last summer so now he can ride greater distances along with his older brother (8 & 12). Our first outing was just a few miles up and back on the Minuteman bike path. Later in the summer we did a long ride up at Acadia park's carriage roads (full loop). Well, I've decided to get a new bike, one that more represents the riding we do now and some style. Just today I picked up my new Electra Super Deluxe. This should be just fine for the local bike paths and flatter roads my family prefer to ride. I find it's more comfortable than my older hybrid even with the new cushy seat and gel grips. Time to sell that one as I don't have the room for any more. I"m more into the retro thing anyway.

See y'all around.

Welcome David to Bike Forums.
Great that the whole family rides.

Welcome David.

I'm shopping for a European style commuter right now too. Electras are nice. They look super-heavy, and they're expensive, but it is hard to beat the comfort & functionality.

I'll probably go with something a little more affordable. (you can find the thread in the Commuting sub-forum)

See you around!
