This was truly a cool experience. It's not often that you get to try something that is a completely new technology. For a long time I've said the derailleurs have got to go. Seeing it actually in production is super cool to me. I wasn't sure what to expect, didn't do any research on the bikes, and just showed up with an open mind and lots of questions.
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.
