    6-ish months? I own an extra-wide, sprung-ribbed barrel with legs so it's super awkward and uncomfortable. I do ride without stirrups a lot though.

    I think it's kind of exciting. I'm guessing it's probably a little less cost-prohibitive than some other places it could have gone. I might actually be able to afford to make a nice trip of it with...
