For now I am WAY happy with this new beauty!
As most (if not all) of you know, I have done a few (OK, five - so far) century (100 mile) bike rides and I plan to do many more century rides. I have also set a goal to do a double century (YES, that is 200 miles in ONE DAY -and, YES, I know I am slightly crazy!) in May 2013.
I have been doing said rides on a beginners road bike. For a while now, I have been thinking about upgrading, so I began looking at the local bike shops and getting information from several people. After lots of research, I decided on the above pictured bike. It is a "Specialized Roubaix". I got it on Friday evening and have taken out for a 30 mile and a 45 mile ride so far. Let me tell you, it rides GREAT!
