Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Verazano Bikes

I just wanted to send out props once again to Verrazano bikes for a job well done. I took my GF there over the weekend to get her a new bike, nothing fancy, she doesn't race but wants to ride around the park with me and do the occasional (this weekend) century rides. She's never had a roadie before (welllll, depending on how you read that sentence )
Long story short, the owner gave us a steal of a price on a Trek 1000 WSD, gave her a pretty good fitting and threw in a BUNCH of extras ---we walked off with a great bike for LESS than any of the other bike shops we were considering!

Sure, I bought my last bike there and did drop some serious cash, but even that time they were awesome to me, even before they knew I'd actually buy anything at all.

Anyway, if you're in the NYC area, especially Brooklyn, Verrazano bikes is great and their prices rock! I doubt you'll be disappointed. As soon as I feel the urge to blow some more hard earned money, that's where I'm going!!! (I'm thinking wheel upgrades, any suggestions?)
