GT, Schwinn, Mongoose in Park City!

Dano and I are out in Park City, Utah, for the Cycling Sports Group (GT, Schwinn, Mongoose) annual preview of their new bikes! Not only are we in heaven because we are surrounded by 100s of brand-new, 2010 bikes, but Park City is a-maz-ing!

We arrived yesterday to a cold rainy day... but not ones to let the weather stop us, we grabbed the Schwinn Tailwind electric bikes. What a blast! If you've ever said the words "I would commute to work if..." this is the bike for you. Not only is it assisted by the electric motor (even riding through the steep Park City streets), it has full fenders, a covered chain and cassette, lock, bell, and front and rear lights. An awesome and comfortable ride.

Today we spent a good six hours on the mountain bikes... to include two trips up the ski lift... one with Pro Hans Rey! My first downhill rides, and I can hardly wait until tomorrow to do it again. Dano rode the GT Adventure MTB and Sensor 1.0, I rode the Sensor Women's 2.0 and the GT Force. Incredible bikes!

Looking forward to another great day tomorrow, planning to take a ride on the road and cyclocross bikes, and of course, more mountain biking.

We are all in for a treat when we bring these new 2010 bikes in... stay tuned! And as soon as we return, I will post pics!
