I Finally Got It!

I finally got it! Well, it's actually the 2020 model, but the specs are exactly the same (color is the only difference). Unfortunately it wasn't through my LBS, which I feel badly about, but he said...

Assuming this is true I don't think it's so bad. I was initially tepid about disc brakes, but now appreciate that they are better in wet conditions and greatly extend rim life. 26" also do seem...

2021 Sutra (I Finally Ordered it!)

After much hemming and hawing I've finally ordered the 2021 Sutra from my LBS. I'm nearly 50 and need to encourage myself to do more cardio and of course cycling is good for that as well as...

The weight seems like a major disadvantage to me. Amtrak and airplanes have a 50 pound weight limit and even loading a Rad on a bus rack can be problematic.

Let's revive it!

I'm single and childless, so that will never be a concern. I can't imagine living on the road with a family for months or years. It seems awful. If a couple gets along well that...
