Something I discovered, or perhaps I should say became more aware of last night was how comfortable I am on the Hillborne now. I've always found the ride quality to be nice, but it's been quite a process to get it to a point that I would say I'm actually comfortable on the bike. I had high expectations for this bicycle when we started building it last July to early August, and it really seems to have taken that year and several modifications to get it to a point that works - for me. Which is really the point of it all. My first real ride on the Hillborne last August (meaning more than 5-10 miles) was the Venus de Miles ride, and I was concerned that I wouldn't make it through because I hadn't had much time to ride him before that day arrived.
