Nice! Is a goal for me to ride the whole thing this summer. I've typically maxed out at about 35 miles, but I'm hoping to stretch that out with the new bike.

I got mine dirty on the test ride. Not scratched, but dirty. Haven't taken delivery of her yet. She's a beauty, but I'm going to ride the wheels of off her.

I have the Nashbar ones. I like them but they are no longer available. I love that I don't have to wear socks. I hate socks in the summer.

Australia might be a bit complicated for a move. Visas and all that. I could move to Europe tomorrow if I wanted. Dual citizenship with Ireland.

Have a great birthday!

Thanks! You did more than a bit extra. I'll be out on the road sometime in April. March is NOT riding weather here. There are some crazies, but I'm not one of them.

Do I have to

You don't want to have the nicest bike on the rack. I see a few bikes locked up each day at the commuter station near me. They are all beaters.
