I just road my new Trek Pilot 2.1 for the first time today. It was my very first ride on a road bike. I will be 54 iyears old in another week. I have been riding a comfort bike for 6 months. Boy, the Trek is really smooth and fast! I was worried about the new riding position, but the Pilot's gemeotry was very good on my back. Also, I was afraid of the new seat. I am used to a large gel padded seat on my comfort bike, but my new raod bike has a Trek CRZ saddle with a cut-out channel. It is a small saddle compared to what I am used to riding. The new seat was great! I did not hurt at all.
Come on over tho the Raod bike. You will love it!
