Working on my bike. Got the breaks installed. More work than I thought

As for the phone mount. I don't Iike it. I didn't want one that mounted to the handle bar and this one does. I should have read it more carefully.

I spent a lot of money at the bike shop last night so the new bike idea is on hold for now. I am buying all the other necessities first.

Bought this helmet in black for $40:

And these bike shorts for $80:

Next up is a bike jersey.

You're going to have the best butt. If you ride 100 miles a week you may get a better bike

Wags is dominating bike riding. I really wanted to get into it this summer but with all my half marathons I feel like I should be running

Corey you haven't been riding either. Good thing you didn't pull the trigger on a new bike and instead only new shorts

There are so many nice trails around. You can easily get pretty much anywhere in the cities by bike.

Word. I didn't realize how bike-friendly Minneapolis was until recently. It's fun to explore new areas and see the city in a different way.

I think Wagner is the only one of us that actually bikes (based on map my ride). It is a hobby I would like to get into, but I haven't yet.

Chris, get one of these bikes.

I'm not in the market for a new bike right now, although eventually I want to get something lighter than what I have. My bike works well for the leisurely rides that I go on.

I pretty much hate my bike. It's too big for me and I don't like the ram handlebars.

Thoughts on this slickdeal? I want to get a kid thing to pull behind it.
