I picked up a new road bike. I hadn’t planned on it, but my cheap converted mountain bike to road bike required upwards of $250 in repairs, which is how much I paid for it $300+ in repairs and a thousand miles ago. Also, I will be doing a century bike race in April, that’s 100 miles, and figured it was time for an upgrade. I got a very good deal on last year’s model of the Giant Defy 2. It has decent hardware and carbon seat and forks. The difference between this bike and my old bike is night and day.
I put in over 60 miles this week. Here are some photos from my week of biking.
