Sheldon helped me find a good bike, that was about $700 a little over a year ago. Hoepfully he'll pop in. It was last year's model, on clearance at Performance, to make room for the new model. I got a great deal, and I looooooooove my bike.<br><br>
But I was also upgrading from a $100 Walmart Mountain Bike, so probably anything that didn't weigh 50 pounds would have been a good change. <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif"><img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif"><br><br>
My LBS also helped me with a new saddle, after riding for a while and getting numb/tingly sensations in my private parts. The saddle helped so much. They also helped me raise my handlebars, which made riding so much more comfy for me. Maybe this year I'll take the plung and do the clippy pedals, who knows.
