New bike! So much lighter than the old one.
Will be going for a ride later.
@GeoffWozniak enjoy your rides!!!
@11backslashes Aluminum. It's a Giant Escape 2 City. Nothing really special. It's just that my old bike was a beast. :)
@11backslashes Sorry: Escape 2 Disc.
@11backslashes Good to hear! When I rode it back from the store it was so different than my other bike that I didn't even know what to think. It was so much smoother.
Looking forward to going out tomorrow morning for an extended ride to see how it feels and what adjustments may have to be made.
It's nice to have a bike that fits, though.
@11backslashes This Escape 2 is the 2021 model.
I had the old bike for about 17 years or so. It was a hand-me-down when I got it. The last couple of years I've been riding more since I can't do running any more, so it was time to get something that was better suited.
The old one is getting fixed up and donated to someone who needs it.
@11backslashes It will probably go to a student in need. It's monsterously heavy, but it's something. I'm hoping it will help someone.
A bunch of technomancers in the fediverse. Keep it fairly clean please. This arcology is for all who wash up upon it's digital shore.
