Thanks to my brother, who knows FAR more about bikes than I do, I have a new-to-me bike! While I will miss my old blue bike this bike is WAY easier for me to ride. You can see the huge difference in size when they are side by side. I am pretty tall and old blue was just way too short, even with seat and handlebars completely extended. The new bike made her debut on Bike to Work day and a bit of rain that day quickly made fenders #1 on my personalizations to add.
