Picked up my new mountain bike yesterday. It's a Giant DS1. While I was at the bike shop I took it out back in a parking lot to ride it again before I bought it. Now keep in mind, I haven't owned a bicycle since I joined the army a little over 19yrs ago. I pulled a small wheelie...seemed kind of light compared to my drz...., then I down shifted a couple gears, put some muscle into the pedal and tugged....a little too hard on the bars, up and over it came and down I went on one knee, having the presence of mind to remember this bike wasn't actually mine yet I maintained a death grip on the handle bars so the bike just remained balanced on the back tire, no damage...to the bike, but when I walked back into the bike shop limping with blood dripping down my leg from my knee (was wearing shorts)...I felt kind of stupid and just said "well, ok, I'll take it! Anyway, just wanted to share.
