I took all of my savings and bought a new bike. Well actually two the first was a cheapy I got from criegslist. I should of test rode it better utter piece of dog doo. Its now residing in my bike grave yard. The second I went to the local bike shop and bought a trek 820. I went with a mountain bike again because I need the wider tires to help with fact that I am so heavy. I even went with a girls bike after a discussion with a bike rider who gave me a lecture about the different geometry between boy and girls. Its a first for me in a long time. This bike is not a sissy bike. I doesn’t have pink flowers on it. Its black and a coal grey. I have never been much of a pretty princess girl. I am and always will be a tomboy. I miss my Izzo it was a great bike.
