"Congrats Jeff! My girlfriend has a Sirrus Elite and it's been nothing but a great bike. Her longest ride on it was from Chicago to Canada so multi-day outings are certainly possible."

"Chuy strikes me as a panderer, not a leader. Public input is great, but we need a leader who can make decisions that might be unpopular at first. Change is often hard for people to accept at first. He seems like he'd cave to NIMBYs."
