Specialized Bikes – Hardrock Sport 2014

I stopped off and picked up a 2014 Specialized Hardrock sport on 29in rims yesterday. I found the folks at Concho Bike Shop very helpful. On my first day I put 18 miles on it. Day 2 brought another 16 road miles.

We are on a little vacation so I have time to read the little red manual that came with my bicycle.
I found a few nuggets to laugh at:
Standover height – “…and bounce vigorously on your heels. If your crotch touches the frams, the bike is too big for you.”
Riding Safety “Remember that a bicycle always loses in a collision with a motor vehicle….” & “Never ride your bicycle under the influence of alcohol or drugs”
Night Riding – Well this chapter ends up being about riding when the sun goes down and not about riding in a car with a cool computer personality.
If your bicycle sustains an impact “First, check yourself for injuries, and take care of them as best you can. Next, check your bike for damage” – Really folks? Are there people who love their bike more than themselves?
Enjoy the ride – Derrick Perrin

Stolen Bicycle – Specialized Hardrock Comp

After cleaning out my garage I left my 2005 HARDROCK COMP DISC bicycle next to my front door. I bought this bike from the Pedal bicycle shop in Corpus Christi on 09/30/2005. Someone took it from my property and I was crushed. That was my first new bike since I was in middle-school and I really liked it. When I worked in downtown Corpus Christi I would keep it at my office and ride around during breaks.

It was this color and configuration.

A tall person can ride a short bike but a short person could not fit on this tall bike. I’m sure the thief just saw something bright and shiny and made it their own. I would like that thief to bring my bike back to me.
