    Well I decided that I wanted to get a road bike also to go along with my hoss dee lux. So i went shopping with my camera and a few friends lol.

    Looked at this one first!


    After deciding that one was too small i went and looked at this model.


    And decided that it just wasnt the right color even though it matched the shoes and shirt.

    So i finally wenth with the Trek 2100.

    Nice bike.
    Don't take offense at this, but how much do you weigh? Cause those wheels are mightly slim on spokes. Make sure you get a good floor pump and air up the tires so you don't get a pinch flat, and have the guys at the shop either properly tension the spokes, lock em in, or see if you can swap em out for a beefier wheel.

    BTW, your chain's crossed.

    Yeah I havent even ridden the bike since i picked it up. I rode it yesterday but not today it was terential down pours here in florida thanks to hurricane Dennis!!

    I am at 325 now, down from 452 . I went with those wheels and this setup due to my weight and the recommendations of everyone around here saying that those paired spoke wheels are the strongest and the LBS was saying he would feel better with me on those wheels.

    Not sure what FSA means ????

    Heres the specs on the bike! http://www2.trekbikes.com/Bikes/Road...2100/index.php

    FSA is a manufacturer, they make mainly cranks and bottom brackets, but also other stuff I think.


    I like that first picture, hehe

    the trike's nice, raise the seat and flip those handlebars over, you'll be much more aero.

    The other day, pants rolled up, gloves on, helmet on, messenger bag strapped on tight, I bombed through an REI riding a tiny tricycle. I got a lot of odd looks, and one cheer. Its hard to pedal those things... Kids are stronger than we think!

    Seriously though, good choice, and good on you for trying the other options.

    peace,
    sam

    Very nice bike... BTW those are bontrager race lite cranks, do not know the manufacturer who makes the bonty cranks. Those wheels should hold up, but I would think about some 32 or 36 spoke wheels if you have problems. Oh ya... the bike has enough spacers... flip the stem...

    Welcome to the 2100 club!

    Have some good miles on it... enjoy!
    Just your average club rider... :)

    I've had several since 1999 but have settled on my beloved 2001 Litespeed Tuscany and my latest, a 2013 Cannondale CAAD 10.

    Those low spoke count wheels are just honestly a marketing gimmick. Gee you pay more for a weaker wheel that is actually made of less spokes.

    Whoever came up with that idea is a genius.

    Agreed. The best wheel is plain old 32h 3 cross in my opinion. Those low spoke and "paired spoke" wheels work, but i think your better off with the classic pattern still
