I have the exact same model. I love it.I took a 40 mile drive to the nearest REI to return the defective bike pump and ended up buying this floor pump (tall version/black color) instead. $65 vs $40 but all metal tube and chuck construction with a wooden handle. Gauge is a bit larger as well. Bike still in shop getting overhauled. Guess I'll have to wait till next weekend to take my first bike ride in years.
I have been informed that the exercise is called spinning, which is also strange.
I'm sure you are familiar with the phrase, "Just spinning your wheels"? It means to work at something but not get anything done. Well if you are on a stationary bike you are doing work but not going anywhere. So "spinning" would seem to be a perfect description of said activity?
I was told it shouldn't be another week for brake pads. We'll see if that's true.
I rode 2,500 miles last year. I might have ridden more if not for my rides being limited to 1 to 1.5 hours (the most I felt comfortable leaving my mother alone). I'll see if I can get back to my old normal of 3,000 to 4,000 miles a year this year or next.Is anyone else riding indoors or outdoors these days?
