As many have seen by now, Gustavas (my mountain bike) became a big brother recently.
We welcomed Fritz, a hybrid bike, into the family on June 8th. Let me just say, it's been a smooth ride thus far (pun intended).
Care to hear a little more about this new addition to the family?

First of all, I was very content with just having Gustavas in my biking life. In recent years, he and I have grown quite fond of each other. Let's not forget the invaluable role he played in my stress fracture recovery; and he totally dominated the 100 Day Biking Streak last Fall.
Let me also add that my husband is much more of an avid cyclist than I am, and has participated in several RAGBRAI's (a big week-long ride across Iowa every summer) in the past 10+ years. He's the proud owner of a mountain bike, as well as a road bike (and recently acquired a hybrid bike as well). That said, he's been wanting to get me a second bike for awhile. Admittedly, I was intrigued, but also kind of indifferent.
