Over the past two years, I’ve become addicted to cycling. I LOVE riding my bike!! I can happily ride for hours and hours. If you are a fellow cyclist, please add me on Strava!
So far I have gone through three bikes:
This is the Terminator, so named because it is a Shogun T-1000. I bought the Terminator off Craigslist for $100 along with another bike. He was really heavy but he got me into riding. I sold him before we moved to Nashville and I kind of wish I’d kept him just because he was a damn tank and would’ve been a good spare bike. I put some Ergon grips on him and changed the twisty shifters to Shimano trigger shifters. The derailleur was Shimano Tourney.
This is Livvy, my 2015 Liv Alight 2. She is a hybrid with Shimano Altus components. Livvy is my first “real bike” from a local bike shop. She’s beautiful and comfortable and I really enjoyed riding her. When my homie Rikki started riding with me after I moved to Nashville, she bought Livvy off me (she’s now the distinguished Olivia) and I purchased Spock, my first road bike.
This is Spock, my 2009 Trek Madone 5.2. She’s a full carbon road bike built for speed. I bought her used from my new local bike shop here in Nashville. She was owned by a lady who raced her. I’m sure she’s not my final bike and she wasn’t really what I was looking for, but I got an incredible deal so I couldn’t pass it up. She runs full Shimano Ultegra components.
Canadian Bacon got a bike (“Bones,” a Giant cyclocross) for his birthday. Since we have such limited storage space here in the Cat Condo, we decided to hang our bikes in our stairwell!
