    Default Bike styles and muscle usage

    The wife dropped me off at Spokes in Vienna where I picked up my new CC back to Arlington.

    My legs are humming now! Is riding a drop down that different than a hybrid/MTB in terms of muscle usage?

    Actually, yes - position makes a lot of difference. Even shifting forward/back on the saddle can. My guess though is that it's a new bike and you were having a bit of fun playing, because Vienna to Arlington is primarily downhill!

    Congrats on the new bike. You know pictures are a requirement or it never happened, right?

    Surly describes Hank's attitude quite well.

    I'd be Surly too if you stuck a pedal up my butt!

    NICE bike!
