Congratulations! You might want to squander a little cash on a few inner tubes with longer valve stems, if the ones that came with the bike are short enough to make pumping the tires up problematic. In a few more excursions you'll probably have the bike to the point where it is pretty near perfect for you.

The tires are tubeless, with pretty short stems. I'm sourcing some Presta valve extenders. For now we have those Schrader adapters.

@Eldersmith, squandering cash has been my #1 pastime since my fateful trip into that bike shop a few weeks ago. ;) As 'Bent says, it's a bit weird with short valves on the wheels with tubeless tires. I was nearly in tears the first time I tried to pump my tires before a ride and they went flat.

@Mrs. Gally, congrats to you and Mr. Gally on finishing as the top team!

Thanks, all.

Oh my, Nadim & I got a good laugh out of 'Bent's mistakes were made. Nice recovery to finish 2nd!

Yes, your map/route comparison is hilarious!
Also, I did note the celebratory DQ fudge sundae:) - well deserved.

You've supported my DQ habit in the past and it has been much appreciated!

'Bent and I had a good laugh at our GPS tracks too. We were scrutinizing them together because I thought he was exaggerating about having 25 minutes of errors in a 100-minute trek. But I never should have doubted my husband. :)
