Thanks for my new job, I was finally able to buy a bicycle! I ordered a Public C7. I ran into this quote today while searching for bike accessories:
Susan B. Anthony once said, “I think [bicycling] has done more to emancipate women than anything else in the world.” A woman on a bicycle, the equal rights champion observed, presents “the picture of free and untrammeled womanhood.”

I really hope you enjoy biking. It's such a healthy activity. I myself took a while building the muscles to do it. XD
