New Bike
« on: April 28, 2005, 02:51:01 am »
I bought a road bike. Nobody I know can believe it. I'm not sure I even believe it. The picture of Hans on a bike is Hans on a mountain bike. well, that has all changed. I was going to get a Bianchi Volpe, but it was gone when I got there, so I got a Marin Venezia with a rear rack. (Also my first non-Trek bike) Rode it 30 miles the next day. Really different than even my Trek patrol bike. Raised the stem 20 degrees, and put a WTB SST.2 saddle on it. Plan to add wider tires before heading out on the Lewis and Clark this fall. Hey, it's all about advenure, right?

Ride safe,
