    First ride

    After spending the last two days on my new ride (fully rigid SS) a few things have become apparent…

    1) The lost of weight was instantly noticeable, especially considering my other bike is a 37lb FS rig (Specialized SX enduro)
    2) My SS is ridiculously quiet. I probably would make more noise walking….
    3) I have to pick lines now, no more point and plow.
    4) Momentum needs to be sustained and cherished.
    5) Hills must be attacked, no more gearing down to bail myself out
    6) Step on the pedals and the bike moves NOW.
    7) My thumbs have nothing to do now…

    I'm hooked....

    Sweet!

    You're supposed to cock your thumbs up in a thumbs-up sign as you ride and smile.

    I use my left thumb for the computer and the right to ring my bell, as most people are often suprised by the quietness of the SS.
