Well now you've gone and done it, Denver Fox! You've made me blush...
But thanks for the acknowledgement. I'm having a great time rediscovering cycling and it's great to have a place to come with questions and to share an anecdote or two. I've learned a lot in three months -- from how to fix a flat to how to overcome my fears of becoming road kill to how to set goals that I would have thought impossible just a few months ago.
Now don't laugh, but I'm already thinking about my next bike. I love my Trek 3900, but it sort of feels like I'm learning to cycle with my dad's old station wagon, you know? I find myself envying those with lighter, faster, and yes, more expensive bikes.
But, money doesn't grow on trees, so I'll stay with the 3900 at least until next summer. Maybe get some thinner tires, but that's about it. Then I'll upgrade to train for a century (metric or otherwise)!
