    I don't think we have sheep around here, but I admit I've "laaaaaaambed" when I do see them.
    I'm an introvert. It's sometimes easier to talk to animals than humans ;)

    I don't usually scream when I see a cow. I tend say, "hi cows!" and moo at them :D

    I already test rode the Coda. The dealer is about 2 hours away and I e-mailed him to say I'll be in town next month, and I want a Coda. Then I started wondering about the Allegro... I should stick...

    Makes perfect sense. The Terry bike I mentioned in my PM to you came with a straight bar. I had to change it out for something with a "sweep". The straight bar just had me in an awkward and...

    Jamis Coda and Allegro

    Are these bikes the same, just one in steel and one in aluminum? The geometries look the same, and aside from the component combinations, I'm just wondering what other differences there may be, and...

    I was imagining it with blue bar tape. Unfortunately, the white is no longer available. The 2015 is mint green.

    I'm glad you mentioned the looks. I've been trying to get beyond that. But I can't...

    I'm 5'0", wear a long bathing suit, and have a short inseam. None of the local shops sell Specialized anymore. The man who sold me the Dolce a couple of years ago had all good things to say about it....

    Yes, I am one of those ;) I have the 48 cm Dolce now and while the "lower body" fits well (standover, pedal alignment), I'm too stretched out. I was able to ride a 44 cm a few weeks ago and...
  9. Why would they do this? The Dolce geometry has changed.

    I've been thinking about (maybe) getting a new Specialized Dolce, so yesterday I visited the Specialized site and was happy to see the 2015 models are posted. New colors, graphics ... and geometry....

    Well then you came to the wrong place ;)

    Good luck with the ride tonight!

    Catrin,
    A few people can really ruin it for everyone. I'm glad you were on your guard to protect yourself, your home, and, of course, your bike.
  13. Starting over, selling my two 48 cm road bikes

    It's been a tough decision, but when I test rode a 44 cm, my suspicions were confirmed that I bought the wrong size. And I'm not sure I want drop bars.
    So...
    Before I post these on Craigslist, I...

    The box says USA 5, but I think that might be on the small side. I'm a 7, 7 1/2 and can get into them. They're just a little short. I wonder if it's unisex sizing, making that a men's 5?

    If anyone is at all interested, please make an offer. They're just sitting here in the box.

    Just today I finished reading Hit by a Farm by Catherine Friend. You might want to check it out ;)

    In the meantime, enjoy the land and all its beauty!

    Rebecca, at first I was impressed with your generosity in wishing the new riders safe rides, then I got to the next sentence. My wishes for them were far less charitable. And my mother showed a side...
  19. "Theft" was not my preferred method of culling the herd.

    After 20 years of riding straight bar bikes, I decided to try a drop bar road bike. I didn't think it fit quite right, so I bought another one :o Lately I've decided that maybe I should stick with my...

    Catrin - I'm sorry you decided you need to sell the bike, but I may be interested. I have a bunch of questions (such as, "how tall are you?") but I'm at work now. I can pm you tomorrow (if you...

    Comparing the gears on two bikes

    I'm looking at two bikes now, both described as straight bar road bikes.

    Bike #1: crank 50/39/30, cassette 12-27.

    Bike #2: crank 48/36/26, cassette 11-32.

    What do you see when you look at...

    Hi, no I did not buy it. I watched the auction until the last second. I was at work, and a coworker even gave me a break so I could put in a last second bid if I wanted to.

    I just looked - they...

    It's so nice reading about everyone's rides! Except for local errands, I haven't been out yet at all. When I finally had some time last weekend, I came down with a cold, then some allergy attack (new...

    Buying a bike on eBay

    The other day I test rode a Cannondale Quick and Giant Escape. Both were nice and fit well and I came home to do some thinking. And then I found this:
