Ain't she a beaut?

Just a brief foreword before the gratuitous bike porn photo.....

Once I had measurements and knew which bikes would fit, I wasn't too set on a particular brand of bike.  The shop would have/could have ordered what ever bike I may have wanted....Look, Cannondale, Specialized, Felt, etc.  After a brief discussion (in my head) that went something like..."Chrissie rides a Cannondale, I should get that. *snort*  Yeah, I'm sure it's entirely about the bike."  Okay. So, remember how I said patience was not my strong suit?  Well, when it came down to it, I picked up the bike that the shop fit me on.  I liked it.  It fit.  It was the same brand as my Ruby, which I've had and liked since 2007.  It was available pretty much *now* (after some set-up/prep).  Cha.Ching.

So.......I give you my new Specialized Transition.


Nope, no name just yet.  And nope...Bam is not impressed.

If the rain isn't *too* bad tomorrow, and just light showers as predicted, then we may make our maiden voyage.   Otherwise I guess I'll see how it feels to ride on the trainer. Exciting times kids!

Very nice ride. After walking this morning, my guess is you didn't want to get her wet/dirty and spent your first ride hooked up to a trainer. Am I right? ;)
