I wish mine had the double hand brakes like yours. I hate my brakes. You have to be leaning way forward to use the brakes. There are no brakes if you hold the handlebars in the normal positions.

Fewer nuts makes it more aerodynamic.

There are 600+ miles of trails in Des Moines area. I want to start biking more when the weather gets nicer. Lots of biking/bar events around here this summer that would be fun to go to as well.

Want to bike to High Trestle Trail Bridge

Also, if I get a case it may be this one

I should try biking to work some day. It is 11 miles and Google says it would take about an hour which isn't that bad.
