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.

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!
