New Here

I picked up my 1985 Trek 850 mountain bike after going on high blood pressure meds
weighing about 285. That was 2 years ago. This year I bought a new Fuji road bike
starting the year at about 255. After about 950 miles I started breaking a spoke a week.
I'm back on my Trek as the bike shop dude is jerking me around. I have learned a lot since
reading posts here. I'm new here and want to thank the people here that help others out.
