New Ride


Same path, same time, but a different ride.

Yesterday I got the Bianchi Brava (see above, except it is white and has flat-t handlebars now) with new gears, brakes, and handlebars back to join the pride.

After attaching a water bottle, it was off on my morning stroll through the neighborhood.

Different? You bet.

This bike weighs about an ounce and handles like a racer, because that is what it is.

Also tiny tires and NO SHOCKS! My butt is getting used to that.

I don't know if the lightness of the bike or the working gears, but this creature can downright fly.

And hills are unbelievably easy.

It's still hot and takes a 1/2 hour to cool down but this was an interesting experience.

The frame is a little short for me, but the ergonomic grips help. Now to get a mirror.

Always look for those new experiences and keep a eye on the road.

That's a beauty. There's nothing like quality, is there?

Bought it years ago. Just an upgrade.

No shocks? Watch out for painful inflammations...
