A few weeks ago, I finally managed to sell my Chevy Cobalt. Since then, I have been looking for a new way of getting around. Originally, I wrote a post about my new ride being a set of rollerblades. However, it’s not that easy getting around town on rollerblades.
A New Bike
So instead, I decided to buy a new bicycle. Check it out:
I’ve been looking at bikes for about a month now before I finally pulled the trigger and bought one yesterday. Performance Bike has a huge sale going on right now on their 2008 models and it’s a good time to buy a bike. The bike I got is a Scattante Roma, which was originally an $800 bike and I managed to get it for half that.
I used to be a huge cyclist when I lived in Wisconsin and have done rides over 50 miles before. I had a road bike and mountain bike at home and really liked my road bike because it was so much faster. However, it was a little uncomfortable for normal day to day riding.
Therefore, I decided to go with a straight bar road bike because it still feels a little like a mountain bike but with all the benefits of a road bike. I’m really excited to hop on this thing today and tomorrow and give it a good ride. I haven’t ridden a bicyle since I lived in Honolulu so it’s been awhile.
So look forward to some pictures from some of my rides in the near future!
