Well i don't really know how it happened. A couple of buddies rode and kept telling me that I would love riding and that I should get a bike. I haven't had one since I was about 14(31 now) but about a year ago said I would try it went out bought a Trek 1000 just to see if I would like it. Man i gotta tell you cycling addiction makes a heroin seem like a sugar fix. No never did heroin just making a point. I love this. I am now saving up and selling stuff so I can purchase mey new toy a Colnago. Just say it with me Colnago, oh so sexy. Anyway still being relativly new to cycling I will probably be picking your brains so hope you don't mind.
