Bought my first "real" bike!

My entire life I've ridden a mountain bike, and it's always been a hand-me-down either from my sister or from my aunt. Well, when I got the news recently that I can't go back to running for a long time, I decided to buy my first brand-new bike that is actually fitted to me. I test rode tons of bikes and ended up buying a Specialized Dolce Sport Comp WSD and it's amazing! I had no idea that a bike could feel this good :) Thanks to all of the bike posts recently for giving me lots to think about before making this purchase. Now I can't wait to pick it up and start riding

Re: Bought my first "real" bike!

  • It's a great bike!! Enjoy!!!!
  • My BFF bought one of those last year and looooooooved riding it.  In fact, she enjoys riding so much that she upgraded to an Amira this year.  :)

     

    I'm more of a fitness/commuter cyclist, but I bought a new bike yesterday too.  It's a hybrid though--a Trek 7.3 FX WSD.  I just got back from my inaugural ride.

    Happy riding!

    I test rode that one! Trek didn't fit me as well as the Specialized did, but it was a great bike. Enjoy! 

  • Sooooo pretty! We MUST go on a ride after you get it! There is some great riding near your place.

  • What a cool bike! Enjoy :)

  • Enjoy!  DH and I both ride Specialized bikes (me - Tarmac, he - S-works transition tri bike).  We've both been happy with them.  Have fun and keep the rubber side down!
  • Awesome!  Beautiful bike!  Man, this makes me jealous that I don't live in GA.   It's going to get very humid here soon and you guys have all the good hills!  Enjoy!
