I rode the bike 16 miles today, 1:08. It was a test ride, as I had hoped I would be able to ride back and forth to work every now and then instead of driving, but I don't think that's going to happen. The ride is ok, not too strenuous, but the traffic is the problem. It wasn't too bad today because it's a Saturday, but I did have a couple drives get pretty close while passing, and one women tried to run me off the road, I wish I would have thought to kick her side window in... With week day traffic I think things would be much to hectic for me to feel comfortable.

Do you have a Road Bike, or a mountain bike?
Just curious. I am thinking of buying a road bike, but do not know what is good.

Great time by the way.

Nick,

I have a road bike. I don't know much about them. I did a lot of research last year when I was buying this one but have since forgot most of what I had discovered. I am happy with the bike I have. It's a Trek 1500 slr. It set me back somewhere between $1000-$1500 I can't remember which. Road bikes are pretty fun to ride once you get used to them. I don't ride mine a whole lot, so I'm still perfecting the gear shifting and what not.
