This is my first adult bike. Before this I hadn't had a bike since 7th grade. I am way beyond 7th grade now. The Hubby and I have matching townies, but his is black. I love it and think it is super pretty. It was really fun to ride when I was living on the Westside where it is much flatter than where I live now. The riding position is a too relaxed to climb the hills around here comfortably, but it is still great at the beach.
