Well not exactly.... It just felt so different. I had an ingrown toe nail for about 6 months and finally bit the bullet and got it cut out by the doc last week. During my "healing time" I couldn't ride my GPX. Since I bought my bike last year I have ridden every day. So anyway today was the first day that I was able to ride again. It felt so strange! I'm 6 foot and 100kg so I'm not little anyway, but I felt like a giant gorilla on the little 250. I'm usually extremely cirticaly of myself and usually think that my gear changes are horrible. But this wasn't the case. I thought that my gear changes were surprisingly quite smoothe. It was great to be riding again. P.S. Just some irrelevent info... it was my left foot so gear changes were quite painful before.
