Depends on what you want to ride, there are great trails around, roads not so good (the areas in nice but the roads are in terrible shape) what size bike do you need, or how tall are you? When will you be through?

I have a habit of sometimes displacing my own guilt when I buy new bikes by getting her one too. I don't know how much it helps, she does like to ride, but I don't think either the historic or finanial value of bikes really registers, she likes her Bianchi Milano the most of her basement full of rides (full being relative, she has 3). Anyway, the Ibis does not get ridden the way it should. You should bring a seat with you, and unless you ride Shimano/Ritcheys, your pedals of choice (I could also hook it up with Egg Beaters if that is what you ride).

Seems to be a common theme within the male domain! I have enough trouble furnishing my own needs with only 3 bikes! Ah but I could have so many more if my means allowed it!
