    Finally got a road bike

    I have been swapping between on and off road tires on my mountain bike for almost a year. Actually missed out on some rides because I had the wrong tires and didn't have the time or desire to change for 1 ride.

    Well, my excuses are done! A friend found a frame cheap and built it up for me with spare parts he had (some new ones). I call it a Frankindale...

    Thanks everyone. One of my goals this year was to do my first century at the end of April (Shiner GASP) and now I have no excuses to miss that

    While he didn't do it for free, I definitely owe him a few

    I think its disgusting and terrible how people treat Lance Armstrong, especially after winning 7 Tour de France Titles while on drugs!

    I am sure he was as happy to help a friend get a new bike as you were to get it. Helping my friends in these situations makes me happy for days. I still get excited every time I see my buddy who I sold my Le Tour to.

    Congrats a century is a hell of a distance for anyone, nice job.

    Nice and congrats! I rode a Cannondale R300 for years and loved it.
