Hello Everyone and thanks aerobat for the the kind welcome. I'm a 49 yo guy from central Fla. I am into road biking almost exclusively although I do have a Trek 930 hardtail that I get dirty on occasion. I have been riding a Trek 1220 with old shimano xs componets for a long time. It is running out of steam so I am building a bianchi SL Reparto Course frameset up as a everyday commuter and touring-century bike. I also have bought a CAAD 5 with Centaur from GVH Bikes. My goal for the coming year is to get my century time down to 5 hrs. We have alot of good light traffic roads for traing so I hope with dedication to my training I will get this done so I can move on to other goals. Anyway Thanks again for the welcome and look forward to learning from you all.
