For the sake of learning this would be a good bike. Would it be a good investment? Never! It cost me $1400 USD brand new and the ONLY reason I bought it was because the only bikes on sale were around here were 600+ccs and things like that and I wanted to start safe. If the rider has other beginner friendly bikers around, they should save up more to buy it.
woo hoo had an interesting day today:
woke up at precisely 6 AM:
Got on the bike and went for a morning ride. It was sooo nice. Around here the temperature is 65 to 70 F all year round! When I stepped out of the house I breathed in and felt the cool, damp air of a coastline morning. The sky was a nice navy blue to light blueish in color. The sun was still hiding somewhere in the central area when I got on the bike.
Today was the day all my mountain biking parts would come. I have spent SO much money on motorcycling lately getting gear and parts for my ride that my mountain bikes were yelling, "owner, please spend some money on me. I'm getting lonely."
Bought: new wheelset, brake fluid, brake hoses, brake pads, handlebar, headset, bearings/hardware, and a few more things.
Installed everything in about 2 hours: the end result is a lightweight and sturdy mountain bike! I overhauled the hubs on the wheels by replacing the bearings and relubing it. I gave all the moving parts new oil and such to get the bike moving as smoothly as it could.
later that day I picked up my dad from the airport to get quite a surprise:
He brings over new cell phones for me!
Chose this one:
It's the nokia 8800 and is quite the phone.
anyways that just sums it all up.
