Howdy from SF

I recently got back into road biking after a few years off and gaining some pounds. I am a recreation rider, and started bike commuting, which has got me hooked on riding again in a big way.

I blew some money on a Cannondale six13 recently, and am hoping to get into some low key competition rides with it as I've never had a serious bike before, and have mainly done centuries/doubles etc before.

This place looks like a great resource, and looking forward to spending some time here!

You'll definitely find the info you need here. Doubles, huh? Welcome to the forums.

Yeah, centuries and doubles are not serious stuff I would hate to see your idea of serious. Welcome.

hehe that sounded wrong.

I've done one double (6 years ago) on a 1970s steel road bike bought for $50 and retrofitted with clipless shoes and 23mm tires, but it was pretty flat and I was riding 12hours, total time 15hours - nothing spectacular.

Hopefully that gives a more realistic picture - thanks for the warm welcome BTW

Let me guess, Davis Double?
