Valerie's New Trek

We finally located Valerie's birthday present at a bike shop near Mount Vernon. After a hot test ride yesterday afternoon on the Mount Vernon bike trail we decided on the 2009 Trek 7.5 FX WSD (Women Specific Design) fast fitness bike. It's a beauty. Carbon front folk, aluminum frame, 27 speed, Bontrager alloy rims and 700x32c tires. This tire size will allow us to also ride the crushed gravel surfaces we like to ride on the Rails to Trails. I'll have to switch to my Trek 1000 road bike when we ride together. There is no way I'll be able to stay with her on my old, fat tire, Performance Mtn bike.
