I've got a new set of wheels!

After deciding that my current Schwinn road bike, though a good bike, was not really the bike I needed for what I use it for: daily city travel. Sure, it goes fast and handles well, but it treats every pothole like a moon crater and I wasn't really using it's enchanced aerodynamics. So, after doing some shopping around, I picked up a Giant Cypress EX. It's a hybrid, meaning it's somewhere between a road bike and a mountain bike. It's also built for comfort, with adjustable shocks, on-handle shifting and a quick-release seat with some give to it, as well. The end result is that, though it doesn't handle as tightly as my Schwinn, it rides alot nicer. I'm excited. It's like buying a new car.
