New to the forum. Used to run quite a bit, but after some old injuries caught up with me, ending in a left achilles tendon surgery, I was told that high impact activities, such as running, was an absolute no-no by my surgeon. I've biked here and there, but never really seriously till now. I picked up a Trek Hybrid last winter to get my rear can active again. Before I realized it, I found myself hooked, putting 60 - 90 miles easily on the road per week. I recently got a Specialized Allez Sport Compact Double for my birthday and I look forward every day to putting some miles on that beauty.
Looking forward to chat... ;)

Welcome to Bike Forums. I also have a Specialized Allez and a Trek hybrid. I bet you noticed quite a difference with the new road bike when going up hills.

Definitely. You don't tend to think about all the weight on a Hybrid until you ride a road bike. Still, the Trek has it's own personality. Already has a set of Armadillos on it, so I'm going to use it as my foul weather bike.
Thanks for having me on the forum. ;-)
