First, My Giant is being re-purposed as my work-horse commuter. I need a few more things for this transformation to be completed; specifically, a good headlight/taillight set. It won't be long and my morning commutes will be starting before the sun comes up.
Second, My new LeMond Versailles carbon fibre bike is being customized to my liking. I know the blue sidewall tires don't match very well, but that is the color that Performance stocks in my preferred tire (Vrendstein Fortezza TriComp). They also come in a black or grey which would look nicer, but I can't find those locally. Don't be surprised if/when I find them, I switch them out in vain if the blue hasn't faded enough by then. And if anyone is looking to send me an early Christmas present, well, hint hint hint. LOL.
I found that buying a bike is a very personal thing. I did try a lot of bikes over the course of a month including tribikes and kept coming back to this one because it is simply a joy to ride. And ride it, I have. :)
