2011 Giant Cypress ST:


Gonna ditch the seat and suspension seatpost... Steel bike doesn't need that crap to be comfy, LOL. Looking forwards to hauling lots of groceries and doing lots of commuting on it, particularly as my ol' Schwinn Sierra now needs a new derailleur/shift cable. Oh well, I got 4K+ miles out of a $40 thrift store find beforehand.

The shop traded me a Selle Royal Seta saddle and solid seat-post for the Giant (and giant) "Comfort" monstrosity and suspension seat post that were on it straight across. Rode it home 9.4 miles, and I love it!
