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

http://longisland.craigslist.org/bik/3171898227.html

This bike is affordable, pink (I like pink) and it's a road bike. I know nothing about Panasonic bikes, my last road bike from my early teen years was a Peugeot, and I still wonder why I got rid of it. This would be a primary bike, my MTB would be garaged for trails and camping.

Is this a good bike to start my road biking hobby? What mods (reasonable) would you do to it?

You better get right on it NOW.

Good buys don't last long.

The first person to see it will buy it.
