Well I did.
And I named her Stella.
Want to see her? Here she is!
I really love her. A lot.
She rides like a dream.
I commuted to work today on my bike and it was a dream compared to the former commute that I had. The gigantic hills (yes, there are two on my way to work, my 10-minute commute) were a piece of cake compared to the former ride that I had, where I had to often admit defeat, dismount, and shamefully walk my bike up the hills. Shamefully I ride no more.
I love that the weather is nicer and that I can ride my bike and that I live close enough to work that I can ride. It makes all the difference.
And now my poor roommates, friends, and coworkers no longer have to hear about me talk about which bike I'm going to ride. I no longer have to go from shop to shop, trying out different bikes. I no longer have to go to online forums for wisdom and bike know-how. I can figure it out myself (with the help of nice friends and helpful pamphlets.
I love the outdoors.
