    They only had one pink! I like hot pink too. No idea what the model is.

  3. I like pink and I refuse to feel bad about it.

    Oh, this colour has SO much gender-specific baggage attached to it. I feel like I'm buying into all that crap when I buy it, I feel like I'm supporting the stereotype. But I like it, and I firmly...

    Terrible LBS: the legend continues

    Who here doesn't love a good story?

    oooo I can relate to this so much. I've been biking every day for over a year - up some pretty steep hills, 9km a day for my work commute. Stopped buying bus passes. I haven't lost any weight XD
