2008 Pre-season Update 2

The Rickshaw has had the right rear wheel on it for a while now, but the canopy hasn’t received the final fitting yet. I went to find the odometer in the garage and the wheel sensor is gone. Uuugh!

I thought it might be fun to have a different training ride for a while. So, I’m borrowing Joe’s Giant Simple Single. It looks 95%+ like the factory picture shown. I am a fan of this bike. A great bike for lots of people: comfy, nice ride geometry, reasonable style (needs fenders). If you’re looking for first cruiser, look at the Giant Simple Single.

I took the Giant for a training ride to Lucky Peak Dam (the bottom) on Saturday night. A nice ride, somewhere over 20 miles. The Giant made it way easier than taking the Schwinn. It is geared lower, it rolls faster, and it is lighter. The ride isn’t as comfy (seat, no springer front fork) but not bad, certainly nicer than the average bike.
