    Bought me another bike, like this road biking

    I'm really liking this road biking stuff. Still like mountain biking but like both now. I ordered a used(50 miles on it) bike. Can't wait til it gets here. Wonder if it will perform better than my $250 2008 Giant TCX Kinda wish it would have been the black stealth one but I think this one will be OK.

    I’d take it back. I think some fat dude sat on your saddle and squished the top of your seat post.

    Seriously, though, nice ride. Enjoy!

    Nice color, stealth black is boring IMHO. What's the black thing between the seat tube and down tube above the bottom bracket?

    Bike works great! So smooth and fast compared to my old Giant TCX. Love electronic shifting. The black thing is a tool/tube holder, not sure if I like it yet. Called a SWAT box.

    Couple of observations ...

    1. I think your Giant is about to gather a lot of dust
    2. Much better color than all black. I never got the 'stealth look'. Bikes are supposed to be pretty.
    3. Get a proper tool bag. That SWAT thing screams Fred.
    4. Welcome to n+1 indeed.

    It's a gorgeous bike, but I get what you're saying. The murdered out look might've been done a lot, but it looks good and it looks fast...just like on cars. Still, you will love this bike and will probably be riding this one more.

    Four years ago I bought my C-59. I'm not sure what works so well on it, but my enjoyment of riding increased exponentially after the purchase.
