My wife just got a bike and now is on me about getting one so we can go on rides together. Anyone got a good rec on a bike under 1000 to just go on lighter intensity rides? I'd also use it for a short office commute.

Those look cool. I like Raleigh too. But neither of these are available in my area. Seems like the covid has created a bike boom.

There is a Trek FX2 close by for 600 I think I'm going to look at tomorrow. Worth it?

Biked 110km today

Impressive all on its own but even more with the 21km run the day before. Don’t your legs ever need a rest?

I actually wanted to go for 150 that day but my buddy ate some bad sushi and said he was gonna puke. I've been a pretty good place physically these days. Just my right ankle doing some bullshit.

Very good to hear. Hope the ankle comes ‘round.

I bought the Trek. A friend said soon I'd be biking more than running. Fat chance.

Your friend is right. Bike is so much easier on your body.

The line was around the corner at my LBS today and I couldn’t see a single bike left on display thru the window.

Do you post in km because it sounds more impressive than miles?

I only spent 40 bucks on a helmet. I figure a helmet is a helmet.

A hard 63km yesterday. Headwinds for a quarter of the ride were pretty tough. A leg builder for sure.
