So here's the story. A friend and I were about to head up north to ride a new (to us) section of the AZ Trail, and I was picking him up around 5 a.m. I walked inside while he got his things together, and when i walked out 10 minutes later, the top of my car was bare. Only an empty bike rack remained. After circling the neighborhood a few times and filing a formal Police report, I drove home heartbroken. My bike wasn't anything expensive or special, but I had put a LOT of great miles on that bike, and it put a LOT of smiles on me. Well, having just finished the home buying process for the first time, we couldn't afford to buy a new one. A co worker had mentioned that home owner's insurance sometimes covers theft of personal items, so I gave my ins. company a call, and sure enough, they covered it! They had me run down the make and model of the frame, and itemize all of the components I had upgraded or added, and I ended up getting more than I expected. I love my insurance company!
Anyway, after 3 weeks of processing, they cut me a check, and I was able to find a great deal on craigslist from a fellow mountain biker.
With almost the exact amount I had received from the insurance company, I got my new ride. A 2012 GT Sensor 4.0.
This morning, I took said new bike for our first ride together, and HOLY CR@P I LOVE THIS BIKE!
It handles everything so much better than I expected, and climbed up everything with ease! I cleaned stuff I hadn't in a long time, and felt confident flying down every hill I could find!
Long story long, I just got home from our maiden voyage, and I just want to turn right back around and go again. This bike has made me feel about mountain biking the way I felt when I first started. I feel like a kid out there, and I'm loving it.
Just wanted to share my story with you all, I figured there's a few who might enjoy hearing it!
