Got a new bike

and it took damned too long to get it!

Me and the new bike

I already wrote some stuff about my habit of moving around town by bycicle (here and here too for example) so this won't be a surprise.

For the last few years I've been riding an old mountain bike that wasn't even mine to begin with (dolo's brother wasn't using it at all, so I just borrowed it) and lately I've been riding my father's old trekking bike, which was nicer than the mountain bike, but not my bike:

This is the old MTB I've been ride for some time This is my father's old trekking bike

Also, after getting the bike trailer for lara, we have been doing rides^excursions more often now (dolo, lara and me) and we didn't have a bike that was really comfortable for dolo, so we started to think about getting a new bike for both of us (a proper one for her, and one for me so we could return those bikes to their real owners).

So, for now we have bought a Giant Argento rs4 GTS (from a local dealer, mtcbicis). The plan is that I will use this one when going for lone rides, and dolo will use it during family rides. This will get me back to the old mountain bike, but I don't think it will take too much time for dolo to decide herself about which new bike we should get for her.

The argento, tron-style The same pic as before, but without using the flash to take it Another shot of the new bike, different perspective.

UPDATE: This evening I did a test ride (around 7.5 kms) and the bike is really really good. Fast, comfortable... Really worth the money we've put in it.
