Fortunately one of my Patrons reached out to me looking for some trail info at the same time I needed some motivation to get out on the trail. We ended up riding a quick loop in Auburn SRA and captured how that feels for a person riding there the first time. He's in the process of trying ot find a bike and picked up a demo from Mike's Bikes in Sacramento. If you rent from them the demo price will be applied to your purchase. As it is, this was the second bike he's tested. Of course, I told him to demo the Bronson and he'd be done....but apparently I'm biased.
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.
