    Splurged and bought a brand-spankin' new Dolce Sport this afternoon. I just ADORE her!! She was a little more $$ than I wanted to spend, but DH reminded me the total was about the same amount of gift money we got for our anniversary. DH knew I was obsessed so he stowed the money away instead of going toward debt like we figured that money would. I feel a bit bad about this, but I'm so excited! The Dolce is extremely light compared to my comfort, and 0f course is so much faster. I didn't ride her hard since I was focused on keeping my balance, as it is a much different ride than my comfort. I did dump her once all ready though. I was getting off her after I took my 1st spin around the block and was ready to put her away (she's a lot lighter, read "less stationary, then my Raleigh). We fell very slowly and I blocked her from the ground- can't scratch her on my first day. Woops.

    Sweet! I love how the specialized top bars look curved. I'll have to try a Dolce if I ever get to go bike shopping again
