I've been doing 12-mile runs 4-5 days a week. I've pretty much settled on a 75-80 cadence. Last week a father and son duo pulled out of a side street in front of me and just powered away from me. They were on pure road bikes and just left me in the dust. Some of that is just their being in shape and not carrying my weight. But some of it is the wide tires and upright seating of the Verve 2. I test rode a Crossrip 1 from a Portland, OR bike shop last week and loved it. Should have started out with one.
