Ive been commuting on an old Huffy Mountain Bike 30 miles a day(15 each way) for quite some time. I had an itch to buy a new bike since I travel a good distance and picked up the Trek 1000. OH MY GOD! Why did I stick with my $85 special for so long!! I never knew a bike could feel this good!!! Im hooked on biking now! Just thought Id share.
