My new bike

I haven't owned a bicycle in about 15 years, it's nice to get some exercise outside instead of a stupid machine in a gym.



I keep confusing the front and rear brakes though; and sometimes try to rev-match on the downshifts LOL

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!

where do you guys ride at? I'm keeping my bike at my GF's place in the south loop, so we will hit the paths on Burham Park often.

You can swap the front and rear brakes just by switching the cables, you don't need to pull the levers. It takes 5 minutes tops to do it.

We ride Palos a lot, but without shocks you might not enjoy yourself there. I ride Koch Knolls in Naperville often. It's got tight and twisty single track and wide and swoopy wide track. Fun fun.
