My road bike was back

Bike is very popular nowadays. It's really eco-friendly, economy-friendly and very good for your health.

When I was young, I liked bike, especially road bike. I went to everywhere by bike, and commuted everyday by bike. But I was hit by car two times a year. It was not so serious, but I was sent to hospital by ambulance. Since the year, I seldom had ridden bike, then I have not ridden bike for over ten years.

For current bike popularity and my friends who like bike very much, I want to ride bike again. My bike's condition was no good because ten years no ride. I brought it to local bike shop to tune-up. I asked to change brake pad, bar-tape and saddle as well. After ten days, my road bike was back. This picture is that.

US bike manufacturer Specialized made, carbon fiber frame, down hill bar attached. Finally my treasure  revived!

I am going to ride this next weekend. Tamagawa cycling road is located my neighbor looks very convenience and safe for me.
