    This is my Trek 7000. This is my first "real" bike and I'm loving it. I got it free with my credit card points. I've put about 250 miles on her so far and she's been great. I just ordered a Brooks B17 saddle and I'm on the verge of clipless pedals since I'm constantly climbing hills. 90% of my riding is done after 9pm so I made sure I put plenty of reflective tape on along with some great lights (http://i.imgur.com/wGo19.jpg - can't see the lights here). I love this bike so much, although I will admit that I've been going through craigslist for any deals on some traditional road bikes. But my 7000 will always be my first love.

    Hard to tell from the pic but it looks like your front tire is on backwards

    Wow, shows you how little I know. So much for the "assembled at the factory and test ridden" that was advertised. So what the heck do I do? Take it off and just flip it?

    Yes. If you are mechanically inept, I recommend just taking it to an LBS to have them do it. It shouldn't take more than 2min.

    No, do it yourself. You need to be able to remove and install a tire in the event of a puncture. Carry a spare tube, patch kit, pump and tire levers with you on every ride.

    Here's my 2010 Cannondale Quick 4. My first non big-box store bike. Thinking about getting another higher end hybrid or a road bike

    Know a lot of folks who have bought the Coda and they are universally pleased with how nice a bike this is... don't see as many of these as I do Treks but the fact they use high quality steel frames instead of Aluminium is a plus in my book and their ride quality is rather excellent.

    If I was looking to buy another hybrid the Coda series would top my list.

    you recommend taking the bike the LBS to have the front wheel turned around?

    all that needs to be done is release the quick release, remove wheel, flip wheel, install wheel, engage quick release

    He has rim brakes. That requires the brake to be released, and then engaged after the wheel is flipped around. I didn't feel like writing that, so I said to take it to an lbs. Lol.

    I4N, is that a CygoLite MiliOn? I've got the 150 USB and think it works great. I had to use a TerraCycle accessory mount because my hood's all jammed up with the aerobars.

    That's great! The ExpiliOn is new and I have the MiliOn. Nothing like new technology. But the Cygolite I have is more than adequate for my application, so for now I'll just have to lust for an ExpiliOn 250.

    Tell us about the rest of your ride, looks sweet!

    Happy New Riders

    Our new today Diamondback Wildwood Classics:
    A small frame for the Mrs. and a medium frame for me.

    Logged 2.7 miles bringing them home. Made another seat adjustment on both and very happy so far!

    New mid-60's riders. First trip tomorrow, out to the parade and back. Need to get a few little things like water bottle holders, etc., before we do anything too long. Tomorrow will be about 8 miles r/t.

    Fr. Jeff+

    A pair of aces! Congrats! They should put you in the front of the parade tomorrow.
