Hi folks....... I've mostly been a lurker around here. I introduced myself a couple of years ago, but the whole riding/weight loss thing just didn't click for me @ the time. I'm glad to say, things have changed for me the past few months. Since January 3, 2011, I've dropped 96 lbs, and I feel great! I still have a ways to go (I'm 221) but I'm confident I will reach my goals. In April, I bought a Trek Mamba 29er, and between that, hiking, and eating 1750-2000 calories a day, everything has really come together for me.
So......... my plan was to purchase a road bike in the springtime....... between watching the tour on television, and seeing those Trek commercials (Madone 3.1's for $1699) plus 12 months same as cash w/ Trek card.....I decided to take a peek @ one of the local dealers and test the waters. Yesterday I rode a Trek 2.3, and a Trek Madone 3.1 a couple times, and today I went back and rode both again......and decided to give a Felt Z5 a spin. What can I say, I loved it .... fast and comfortable. I bought the Felt..........going in for a fitting later this week! I'm psyched!!
