That was quick... looks great! I could definitely see myself having a grand day out!
Just ordered a 2012 Specialized Hardrock!!
Will get it within 4 days!!
The "Hardrock" is a nice starting setup. And it was the only bike that got stolen
...since then I am using U-Locks from Kryptonite or ABUS.
Last year I got a Specialized Tricross Expert and changed the crosser into a commuter bike (will post photos later).
Ahhhhh dang not again!! I found a beater on the street for $30, painted it purple/white and then i saw a purple/white bike at the library all "tricked" out, D'oh! Now i see someone else here has already posted a pic of a similar bike I picked up a $90 Walmart bike as a daily driver and still have my Huffy cruiser. (Don't hate!)
^^^ That's one sick run!! Reminds me of the distances these guys do on the Giro d'Italia! I just started watching races, shame it's not in HD and if we drop this sports pack i probably won't be able to see them.
I don't have a U-lock yet, so i'm using the coiled cable lock along with a nice thick chain i wrap around the entire bike.
Following up on your recent appointment. So, how did it go?
Out here on the West coast, despite good weather, I've yet to a maiden voyage for 2012. Memorial Day weekend?
That's my plan. Sunday morning hopping on the local river trail and hoping to get about 20 miles in.
Repaired flat rear tire; no longer have a spare tube. First ride of the year will be a light circuit round-n-round nearby, so if I flat, walking back won't kill me. After the 1st, can buy more kit...
