I absolutely love the bike.
I want to give a shout out to the manager (Mitch) and employees at the Kearny Mesa store. They went above and beyond my expectations in not only helping me select my bike, but also in taking the time to make sure I understood how to ride and maintain my new bike. Mitch in particular took the time to talk about many "how to's" and safe riding practices. He also gave me a lot of encouragement to go out and ride. I am taking that to heart.
