So cheap and tawdry...

That's how my first ride on my new bike felt. After 9 days with no sign of snow/ice-free roads before 2011 I caved and put my new baby on the trainer. It wasn't so bad and it gave me a chance to play with the new SRAM shifter set-up. But I still feel dirty abusing my virgin bike like that.

Spring feel so very far away...I can't wait to fly down the roads on that thing. I think he's gonna feel like butter compared to my previous, aluminum bike.

Well, it's better than nothing. I say ride him on the trainer and stay in shape. There's nothing worse than that first ride in the spring if you didn't ride at all all winter. You'll have a better idea of how great this bike is if you maintain your fitness.

oh no! Hopefully spring will be here soon, or at the very least a thaw.

I know how you feel, Santa is sending a week of snow to make sure that I don't ride my new Spesh before Christmas

Did you at least buy him dinner first?

Better than nothing, and it's good that you get a "dry run" with the new shifters. We've got the same weather down here (well, maybe not quite as bad! No lake-effect snow in Cincy!), and I haven't been out at all. It sucks. :/

At least he's staying clean and not getting all that road grime on his sexy self!
