Yesterday, Jan and I visited our LBS for a couple of reasons. The first was that we were scouting for our son who is coming from Colorado next weekend. He may get a bike since he and his wife have one car and we were seeing what was available for him. He will be commuting to work in Colorado Springs (uphill to work, downhill home–that’s the way to do it). The cycle pictured above is what I commute on and I could not ask for more from a bike. But that brings me to the second reason for going to the shop. My Bianchi came without fenders and I finally decided to get some and some panniers.
