New Stallion in stable
I innocently took Tricia to the City to "check out" some bikes. After a mere four stores she started to kinda sorta consider the Surly Cross-Check, a cool steel cyclocross bike.
They had her size, and were willing to ship it to a closer store if she called them after she'd thought about it a while.
But, well, after a parking lot ride, and, lunch and, hey, there we were anyway.....
So this will become her commuter bike, and her current commuter bike with transmogrify back to the mountain bike she's been missing.
I guess I'll be working on my fender, computer, rack, seat bag, pump and pedal adding skills soon.
How will Tricia adjust to bar end shifters? Will she actually be willing to add a bunch of junk to her now-clean bike? Will she miss her triple chain rings? We'll see, and of course, obsessively blog about it.
