I lost weight...
In my wallet at least...
I used to ride mountain bikes before college, nothing serious, just for fun, but I sold my bike when I needed money. Through college I've grown increasingly out of shape, and now I'm working a lot and still not getting exercise. Currently I'm 6'3" ~260lbs, and needed to do something. I figured I would try to get back into bikes since a couple of co-workers ride and would have some encouragement.
Went to the LBS to just "look", and was considering a hybrid or another hard tail mtb, but ended up with an 07' Specialized Allez Elite.
So off I go with my first road bike... Rode some today, and I can't believe how fast and responsive the bike is, completely different than anything I've ridden. Now I need to build up my rear end and or try another saddle
