Not only is Europe old-school beautiful, the bike trails are phenomenal and in many cases state of the art. The ones that parallel the autobahn often have the same bridge systems over the other busy roads. I did almost run into a deer one night on the way home from work when my headlight went out. I added a backup light at that point, so that I always had two lights available at any time.
Maybe mine is a 2009 leftover the disc brakes add about 1 or 2# to the bike and that may be why thay only had them for a year. I did brake 2 spokes on the rear wheel, but after I had the shop tighten the spokes and true the wheel no more broken spokes, by the way I am 235#. Good luck with your new bike I think you will like it I realy like mine, it is a fun bike to ride.
Well my bike arrived from Bike Nashbar today and it looks great. I took it to a Fuji dealer for assembly and will be picking it up on Saturday. Not that the weather is going to be good for biking here - might hit low 40's - burrr.
