Introduction

My name is Rob. I am 53 y/o and live in Central FL near Walt Disney World.

I have been commuting 13 miles round trip to the bus stop and taking public transportation the last 15 miles. I have been roughing it on a Wal-Mart Roadmaster mtb and riding on weekends with my 12 y/o as well.

Bought a Peugeot Dune last night from a neighbor and got it all ready for my commute tomorrow. Took it out for it's maiden voyage today and although it is still a mtb, it has more of a road bike feel and feels like a Rolls-Royce compared to my Made In China Roadmaster.

Can't wait til morning.
Rob

Do you have slick tires on the Peugeot?

Not yet, but I'm planning on it. My commute is level and most of it is through Disney property, which means the roads are impeccable as far as glass, etc is concerned.
I saw some tires at Dick's last week for $15.
