New ride inside...
Well as great as the GTI is at everything, it'* not as engaging as some rides out there... So I had to get something else for the stable.
My new ride has the following...
- Carbon Fiber everything
- Paddle shifting
- Rear mounted transmission
- Name brand brakes
- No roof
- amazing handling and ride
- Insane trip computer
- Centered seating
- TINY trunk
- 2 cupholders
... and two wheels!
It'* my first road bike I used to ride 10 miles a day atleast in high school. Didn't in college, and lost my fitness level, and my "thinking" time.. Ol' mountain bike needs about $500 into it to get everything working to an acceptable level between the shifters, drivetrain and fork, and it didn't even fit.
I've done a few 25 miler'* already pretty easily. I'm no where near in shape like I was, but I'm getting there.
