Here She Is...

Oooooh shiny, pretty, pretty...

I'm not sure about the white seat though...

You can get all the details about the bike by clicking here if you are so inclined. It's a 2009 Trek 2.3 WSD. I spent more on it than I intended to spend on a bike (not particularly surprising, right?).

I haven't named her yet. In the store DramaGirl suggested Julietta, and then Wanesha. I'm not sold on either and am taking suggestions. I imagine that, like all heffer names, the proper name will reveal itself in due course.

I'm unnerved by the Shimano shifters which are quite different than the shifters that were on my handlebars and overall, I'm scared to death to ride it, but I'm thinking I need to go to Fiesta Island this afternoon to give her a test run.

  2. ooohhh... nice.

    you have the same shifters that i have and i HEART HEART mine! in fact, when looking @ bikes my FIL insisted that i had to have those shifters.

    I like BBJ's suggestion for a name; "Mike"

    When are we going for a ride? :)

  3. OMG that is so beautiful I almost licked the screen (I meant the bike - you're fine and all, too, but you're not my type. Haha.).

    And you look like a natural on it!

  8. Nice wheels! I don't own a bike, so I'm not sure I would know how to "properly" name a bike! But if you go with Julietta like DramaGirl suggested, you could always call the bike "Jules" for short. For some reason, that sounds right to me.

  10. For that money, you definitely deserve more than a 4 minute effort.

  11. A new bike is awesome! Love the color. I have a white seat and white handle bar tape on mine. It doesn't stay too white too long.

    Happy riding! I wish I could come out west and go for a ride with you.

  13. I love it!!

    You're going to have to get time trial bars on the front for that triathlon you'll be doing any time now!

    For some reason Suzy Belle came into my head when I saw it.

  14. I love the color and I think you'll get used to the white seat. The bike suits you and I know you'll come up with a duly suited name for her. Personally, when I first saw her, I thought: Giselle, or gi-Gi for short, because she's sleek and mod with some slight curves.
