Back to the Road

Just finished my first month back on the road with my new Felt Z. Absolutely enjoying the ride and trying to accumulate consistent hours out there. I'm looking to build a good fitness base and I've dropped about ten pounds and am looking for another ten more. I'll be able to get out year round here which is a real bonus after a life spent in New England. Wishing you all well.

I am glad you are really enjoying the cycling. I can tell from the posts on this sub-forum and from the Road Cycling sub-forum that Felt owners really love their bikes.

Glad you are enjoying the N+1 Felt, the weight loss is great. Have fun and ride safe.

Get some lights and you can ride more

Ride as much as you can- start putting effort in when you can and don't forget rest days. You have to clean the bike after all those miles.

Keep it up and why only look for another 10 lbs loss?

Re: the Felt, I think the geometry is just right for me right now. It's a little more upright than my previous Bianchi and well, it just feels right. It came with clips but I'll be removing them for clipless soon. Take care.
