    Well i rode my bike for the first time today since bringing it home a week ago. this thing is a beast going up the hills. And on the flats its just plain insanity. my JAMIS never rides like this. It is fast and so easy to ride. I did 28mi today and when i got home it dint even felt like i did 28mi. However i did start to have some difficulties shifting form front and in back. But my LBS told me it would stretch everything out in the first ride.And that i would need to bring it back in for adjustments. but other than that, the bike is great. here is a shot of the bike on a snack break at the gas station.[​IMG]

    Yea i know, i will be doing longer rides in the future. Wanted to go longer, but there was rain in the forecast and about 15min after i got home it started poring down. Its been raining since, supposed to break later today. I hope to go for a ride on Saturday after i take the bike in to my LBS to get it adjusted.
