Monday night, I wandered off to Penn Cycle on Lake Street in Minneapolis and purchased a new road bike.
In fact, it’s my first road bike ever:
I’m now setup for both road and mountain biking – and for the time being – the Trek 4500 mountain bike is back in Boston, the Trek 1200c is here in Minneapolis, and life is good.
This is my first bike with the Shimano SPD clipless pedal system – which required new shoes and alot of practicing in order to get used to clipping and unclipping. But after five days of riding, I think i’ve mostly gotten that system figured out.
The bike was accessories with a Trek bottle cage and bottle, a Topeak lock, and a Topeak road pump. I also picked up my first Giro helmet, in a silver color to match the bike, of course.
