Well after reviewing threads for a few weeks and going down to the LBS, riding a bout 6 different styles, I splurged and got myself a Trek 7300. Only upgrade will be the seat for now. Should take possesion next weekend.
I am hoping to firm back up and get some cardio training and LOSE some weight. I am tipping some 300lbs on a 5'9" solid frame. 52 years young.
So anyway, that's my short story.
