Equestrian here looking for a new ride and another way to keep fit. Been riding an old Walmart bike and decided I'm ready to take the plunge and buy a real bike that fits. Went to the cycling shop today and am considering the Trek 4300 WSD or the Gary Fisher Marlin GS. When I'm officially a real bike owner I'll let ya'll know;)

What a beautiful blaze!
What's your mount, and what kind of riding do you do?

Dutch Warmblood and Percheron. I like dressage but also do some hunters. My husband is a thoroughbred race trainer. I would like for him to get a cycle too he's into running I'm NOT.

I suspected that you might have a warmblooded cross there. That must be one tall horse!

He's about 16.3 wasn't suppose to get THAT big. I'm only 5'3" hopefully I have better luck when it comes to bike fitting:roflmao2:

Hmmm, in that case, you will probably prefer the WSD versions. Have you looked at the Specialized bikes? I much preferred the fit of the Specialized Dolce to the Trek WSD.

I'm a new member as well.
It so happens that I'm also an equestrian with a Perch/TB cross (we event).
Like you, I'm about 5'3" and happen to ride a very drafty 16.3 beast.
Finally, though, I have something I fit on even if it is 49cm of cold, hard steel :)
Nice to meet you and best of luck!

WOW! someone else that can feel my pain. I'm going to check out that Specialized Dolce. Thanks for the tip.

I see it is a road bike. I am first going to get a mountain bike so that I can enjoy some of the trails in the parks here. Too many crazy drivers here in central Florida for me to want to hit the road especially with my son.
