Hello all. Great site. I've decided in middle age to give up running and start biking for my aerobic exercise. Had a Marin hybrid but just got a Trek Pilot 5.0 which I modded with some Ultegra shifters. Love the bike and the way it accelerates compared to the heavy marin, what a difference. Have been out twice, first time hit by a car at an intersection, just minor scratch to me, didn't fall off. Hey, it's dangerous out there! :-) Anyway look forward to interacting with you all.
