I have a new bicycle, an engagement bicycle!
Cranky's in SB did the build, advised on all parts and recommended the awesome shallow handlebars and nice grip tape. They also helped me find the perfect front rack... because immediately after having a lighter bicycle, I tried to weigh it down. :)
I've barely ridden it so a review is silly, but I can say a few things that I noticed so far!
It really does.
I thought it did not, that I could adjust down or up a frame that was "close enough."
Now that I have a bike that really fits-
Wow. Just wow.
It's so stable, I barely notice if I'm going "too fast" because the bike doesn't shimmy or worry at all. It's made me wonder if my whole fear of speed was due to being on a bike that's too big... and it's so comfortable and I can ride forever without getting as tired. Or so it seems so far.
Also, Cranky's recommended some awesome tires! They are Panaracer RibMo, 28's at 100 psi. I love them! They feel really good in a hard-to-articulate way. Good and cool, like them, I do.
Finally, I think I might have enough bicycles.
But do I?
Anniversary tandem? :)
