This bike is going to get me above 2,000 miles this year. Maybe. I think.
So far I’ve got 134 miles just this year. It’s barely been up to 60F most days yet, and as the spring and summer get into full swing I imagine a lot of my time will be spent riding this thing.
Pros of a brand new bike:
- It’s exciting to ride – newness!
- It’s got the best gearing I’ve ever had on a road bike (50/34 combined with 11-34 cassette).
- It’s shiny and new.
Cons of riding a new bike:
- Well…it was expensive.
- That’s about it.
Probably the best purchase I’ve made in a while in terms of smiles per dollar.
