New Clyde in Shreveport, La
Guess by defualt I will be joining your club. Pretty psyched about it, really. Getting back into biking after a 20ish year hiatus, and looking forward to the freedom and health benifits i.e. weight loss. I have been lurking here over the past 2 months or so and have enjoyed the wealth of info everyone has provided esp on equipment selection/choices and training programs. About me-
distance runner in high school/college
Over the last few months been researching various bikes/bike styles. Finally settled on a 2007 Lemond Tourmalet w/ a double chain ring. LBS has be great to deal with thus far. Bike was orderd on Monday, so it should arrive on Friday, hopefully have it fitted on Saturday. I rode a 06 Felt F80, Felt Z90, OCR A1, OCR2, Reno, and Etape. I guess i have a type A personality but the poorer shifting of lower end components was like someone running their fingers down a chalk board. Perhaps im a little Type A. Ill post pictures of the whole set up once i get it home. Any other Lemond riders out there? Seems like a bunch of Giant, C'dale, and Trek folks.
