from like 8yrs in Germany. A bike riders paradise....dogs too. Now we've been set down in El Paso, Texas. My poor golden Lisa is having a total cow. The stickers plague her poor toesies unmercifully. She hasn't been out for a decent run since we got here.:hate: Jina the GSD doesn't mind the heat but she's still to young to run. What kind of bike to i ride? Ah....its got two wheels.LOL At one time it was an HM something... now its just a mutt mutt that rolls where i need it to go and pulls the kids trailer behind. Your basic commuter bike. Hoping when we get a bit more settled and the youngest is in school full time, I can go back to something in the Trek family.
