Rice Girl -- I hope you continued to follow this thread that you started. I hope, too, that you conquered your fear of your bike and of riding so that you are, by now, really digging being (safely) on the road. There is soooooooooo much great advice in this thread that has helped me as I prepare to take my lovely beast for our first practice outing this weekend. As you said, Rice Girl, the only way to eat an elephant is one bite at a time...and the only way I'm gonna ride my baby is one gear at a time. So, thanks to all who responded to this thread. I'm sure your info and encouragement helped Rice Girl...and I know damn well you helped me!
