Road Bike!




I spent 4 hours test riding bikes yesterday. I started looking at the aluminum/carbon frames and gradually moved on to the full carbon bikes. I bought a Trek Pilot 5.0 which is full carbon, Ultegra/105 drivetrain, cane creek brakes and bontrager race wheels. I really can tell the difference between a $1500 bike and a $2000 bike so I knew I had to get out of there before I decided to try a $2500 bike! I love this bike.

Sweet! My husband bought me a Trek three years ago. He has a Cannondale now. One of his hobbies is buying bikes and then trading them in for different ones. I don't understand it, but after 12 years of marriage I think I'm finally used to it and glad he doesn't do that with his wife (trade me in for a new one).

You must be a keeper and have all the latest technology. you probably have efficient and highly reliable shifting between gears and you must be a good climber and handle well on the sprints. :-)

What a compliment!

coming from a cyclist, it is a high compliment. there is only one higher compliment you could receive. so if it's true, you should be proud, kansas.
