    Man, am I feeling it today though. I feel like someone beat me with a stick. I need to get back on the bike and work through this so I can toughen up.

    Good on your new ride.

    I have a 1998 Cannondale Super V900.

    Just had new shifters put on and it is still a sweet ride.

    Don't off road anymore. To old to wreck.

    I did bike officer duty when I was on the job and was an IPMBA Instructor.

    Great low impact cardio for an old guy. Good excercise for the dog also.

    The Super V, now that is old school.

    I had a Super V, and then a Super V Raven (carbon fiber) back in the '90's. I was a bike mechanic all through high school and college, then got out of it and sold the Raven to put a down payment on a condo. Last year (eleven years later) I fell back into it, wrenching and selling at a local shop. We're in an avid road/mountain/commuting town, so we do a lot of business, including keeping up the patrol bikes for several local police agencies.

    Congrats on the new bike!

    Be careful riding with the dog; a local guy was doing that, and the dog made him wreck. He has a severe head injury, dang near killed the guy. After seeing that, I won't do it anymore.

    I raced road bikes for about fifteen years. 175-200 miles a week with some very fast group rides and throw in a race or two a month during the season. Still have a couple of bikes but i'm done with racing and fast group rides. I may get a hybrid for fun and fitness some day.

    Yeah, I have no desire to race. I have a couple of parts bikes built up, but nothing nice. I'd like to get a new 29er, but the little money I can spare goes toward shooting, these days. It's a little embarassing to be the shop employee that doesn't ride.

    An outstanding purchase, it should smooth out the vibrations a bunch with all that carbon. I would love to upgrade my wheels with a lighter wheelset to make accelerations and climbing easier, but need the firearms training worse. I have a LiveStrong ride coming up on the 13 of this month, hope it won't be as hot as today was...if it is, it's gonna be a long 70 miles.

    I was just about to start a new thread when I saw this one.

    I started biking about two years ago, I purchased a cheap Walmart NEXT
    MTB and its was OK for what I did.
    When Slickshot and I married, she was and still is a serious rider.
    So as to keep up with her I finally decided to get a upgrade, I found a Gary Fisher
    Merlin just this past week at a pawn shop.
    315.00 dollars out the door.

    Man what a difference a real bike is, I'm happy and now its more biking time for me.

    I rode my 50 year old Western Flyer to work this morning. Not sure if that counts.

    Hey, you got some good exercise and you didn't add any pollutants to the air. So yes, it counts. Although I have a couple of fairly expensive bicycles and I ride a Harley, I still say HI to everyone on the bike paths and I wave at all motorcyclists--even those on on "rice burners". I'm not a "brand" snob.

    I bought a 2011 cannodale QUick, I Try and ride to work 3-4 times per week. I work 7.77 miles one way so it adds up to about 16 miles a day depends if I have to detour and go to the bank. I have done a 30 mile ride on the WOD that is awesome.

    The most important part is when I ride, I carry my G19 in a Tommy Pack fanny pack. Best Fanny Pack for Concealed carry IMHO. When I get to work I keep my Milt Sparks VM-2 in a safe and switch carry modes.

    ACTIMMY the first couple upgrades you should probabl do if you haven't already is get a good bike computer. I also put climbing bars on mine, 2 bottle cages, and a pump. Its cool when you can see how many miles you put on your bike. I bought mine back in May and Put 270 on the computer, and 90 miles before I got the computer. Get a tune up within about six months of riding do to cables stretching. Also, if you ride alot make sure you get regular tune ups from a qualified bike Tec.

    I ride a Trek 800 all the time. I currently have about 5,600 miles on it. It is still my favorite ride. I also have a Fuji Road bike. It's an older model but it is still a great bike.

    I'm a little jealous of the Trek Madone! You will love that bike I am sure. I know I would.
