My bike

I had been using my grandfather's MTB (a 13 year old chromoly Giant Boulder 500). But realized that less rolling resistant would be achieved with bigger, thinner tires. I got this secondhand. A Specialized Globe Sport.
I love to ride it. I now commute about 100km a week. Find it very easy to use. What do you think?

Very nice! If I wasn't a fan of Giant bikes, Specialized would be what I would be riding.

Lovely bike, I am hoping to restore one of my bikes with thinner tyres and your pictures have definitely sealed the deal. Enjoy the bike.

Thinner tires really built up my confidence on the road since I can go faster, with less effort, ridding longer distances without being Lance Amstrong!
