Hey mve, I know it had nothing to do with the frogs, but could you post any pics of your road bike ? I really like road biking too, I actually have a 2001 Cannondale R3000 which is very hot, but I'd like to see what yours like

Glad you enjoyed your trip !

Bianchi is a real good company, i used to race mountain bikes pretty serouisly, and they made a fe mountain bikes, but their road bikes are super nice. i have an iron horse that i built up for downhill mtb. and a DMR (out of the UK) set up for dual slalom. both are real fun to ride.

I go mountain biking, anyone else? I have a nice Diamondback that I got a few years ago, and it really tears up the trails! i am also careful not to run over any frogs or snakes, though I once tagged a passing garter snake

yeah, my brother said there is no warranty anymore for cannondales, that kinda sux. lets hope it doesnt break, which i doubt it will, they are very nice. i also ordered the bianchi team jersey and bib shorts, so i will look like a pro, ha ha. i suck though. i am going for a ride in 2 weeks up to mt. baldy, it is i think 14 percent uphill for 9 miles. and then the fun begins on the down hill. it should be fun

Ginevive, I go mountain biking too once in a while. I like both, road for exercise and challenge, mountain for fun and landscape.

Really ? No warranty anymore ? Shit, I'll have to be cautious and make sure I won't have any trouble.
BTW, I do look weird with those bib shorts and jersey too lol, so uncomfortable :P

Have fun on ur ride
