I'll look into it. All I've ever been able to find are "normal" 18" frames.

250 miles in three weeks and you're not using drop handlebars? Pretty impressive. I think that's the first thing i'd look for. Unless of course, you've not looking to get places as fast as possible.

I rode to work today for the first time since moving to Tampa. My truck's got a ruptured fuel tank, and I can't afford to fix it 'til next week. For being on a hardtail mountain bike with knobby tires and a frame 4" too small, it was a pretty nice morning. Mid-70's, low humidity, light traffic...and it only took me about 5 minutes longer than driving. I might just keep doing this.

I've been planning to sell my SCUBA gear since I never get to dive anymore, so now I'm thinking that once I do I'll use the money for a nicer utility bike. There's a shop near my apartment that carries Giants, and the Escape 2 looks perfect for what I need. Here's hoping I can get this rig sold soon.

Nope - I am looking for exercise. Resistance, to a degree, is good.

Clipons. I like being able to work my ham's as I pull the pedals... No other real reason.
