So, not surprisingly, I rode the Americano down to the river; Chattahoochee river.
- I wanted to find out if the bike had survived the move. I found some issues, some of which I can fix on my own and some of which will require a professional bicycle mechanic. It is good that I found them, so that I can have the moving company reimburse me for these expenses.
- I wanted to see how the Americano faired, in the hilly area near my home. I was very pleased with the performance. In particular, I loved the way the Americano climbed. And, while descending the 26%+ hills around my neighborhood, the bike handled superbly, boosting my confidence to a very high degree.
Objectives achieved. Boy, don't I wish there were many more days when I could say this? :)
