Tracy is my Canadian bike. Not as light, fast or nimble as Ruby (the NY bike) but better for the Confederation Trail. Technically she's a cross bike. And no, I don't name all my possessions -- I'm not that weird (I prefer "quirky".) Ruby is the actual name of the Specialized women's road bike, and Tracy seemed a natural for a bike actually called TCX. No reflectors -- our friends at Smooth Cycle said high-end bikes don't have them (don't high-end bikes get ridden in the dark?) Reminds me of the time I bought a new bike and asked for a kickstand. The guys in the store are probably still laughing.
