My New Transportation

A few weeks ago, I finally managed to sell my Chevy Cobalt. Since then, I have been looking for a new way of getting around. Originally, I picked up a set of rollerblades. However, it’s not that easy getting around town on rollerblades.

A New Bike

So instead, I decided to buy a new bicycle. Check it out:

I’ve been looking at bikes for about a month now before I finally pulled the trigger and bought one yesterday. Performance Bike has a huge sale going on right now on their 2008 models and it’s a good time to buy a bike. The bike I got is a Scattante Roma, which was originally an $800 bike and I managed to get it for half that.

I used to be a huge cyclist when I lived in Wisconsin and have done rides over 50 miles before. I had a road bike and mountain bike at home and really liked my road bike because it was so much faster. However, it was a little uncomfortable for normal day to day riding.

Therefore, I decided to go with a straight bar road bike because it still feels a little like a mountain bike but with all the benefits of a road bike. I’m really excited to hop on this thing today and tomorrow and give it a good ride. I haven’t ridden a bicyle since I lived in Honolulu so it’s been awhile.

So look forward to some pictures from some of my rides in the near future!

    Great bike. I’m a big fan of Preformance Bikes, too. I bought my bike online, had it delivered to the store, and picked it up. When the gears weren’t working correctly, I took it back and they fixed it. No fuss, no muss.

    Now, I’m regularly commuting on my bike, plus it’s my favorite mode of transportation when I need to do a lot of short jounts in small places.

    Cool. I’ve been looking to get a bike myself for those short trips. Am currently checking out folding bikes though, since I want to be able to take mine on the train, or up a building, if needed. 🙂

    A bike is a must these days. It’s not only a bike. It is a great investment, both in your health and for future savings. It is not necessary to run your car if you have to go somewhere. Having a bike is a great thing. All our family members have similar type of bikes and they love it…
