    I got my brand new bike, a Scott reflex 20. it is beautiful and amazing. I am going to be doing some local rides in the Shenandoah valley with my LBS. I am very excited and I am celebrating!

    Congrats! I love getting new bikes. I seem to start a new thread about it each time I'm luck enough for it to happen....

    I see you have a green garden hose. I have a yellow one. Which would win in a fight?

    Moff, I'm really sorry to hear about your hose.

    Mine looks a little like this one:



    But not as tidy.

    And my lawn is longer.

    The one with stripes would win for sure, even if it was 2 against 1 the stripe would still win.

    I got a reflex as well. It's so much fun to ride. It handles switchbacks so easily. Decently light too. Got mine built up at 22lbs. Only problem I run into is on trail rides. Figured out the hard way that my crank arms were too long.... think pole vault.

    It's great at the pump track too!

    Okay, I was just outside taking the dog for a walk, and a neighbor had a yellow hose in their yard. I have determined that yellow definitely defeats green.
