Since the Bronson was still in the shop I decided it was a good time to grab another demo bike. I went up to Folsom Bike in Folsom, Ca (imagine that) and was pleasantly greeted by the owners and the staff. They rented me the 2018 Giant Trance 3 for the day at a low cost of $55. That's a steal compared to most demo's start at $100.
I'm just a guy in Northern California that loves riding bikes. Most of my time is spent on a mountain bike. I also own a single speed for around town and commuting. Last but not least I own a cross bike. I couldn't bring myself to buy a road bike. That was my compromise to be able to ride with the lady. I'm originally from Pennsylvania and have that blunt east coast attitude. Some people love it, some people hate it. Either way I wake up in the morning.
