My search for a new bike has finally come to an end just in time for Father’s Day. My wife an I went out on a date during the day yesterday to run a bunch of errands and enjoy lunch together after which my wife surprised taking me to pick up a new bike. Over the past few months I’ve tested Schwinn, Scott, Giant and Specialized bikes looking for a comfortable ride for commuting and riding with my kids. I finally settled on the Giant Cypress DX because it simply felt the best. The ride is very smooth and in a very comfortable position for the kind of riding I’ll be doing. What’s even better is that not only was the bike on sale the tires had been upgraded for a previously interested buyer which I didn’t have to pay for! Woo hoo! My lucky day. Part of my Father’s day will definitely be spent riding around the neighborhood with my daughter who thinks Daddy’s bike tires are “really huge”.
Thanks again to everyone who offered me such great advice back in March. I used much of it throughout the past few months as I shopped around.
