My name is Steve, and I live part time in Rancho Cucamonga (house) and most of the time in Irvine (school- UCI [ZOT! ZOT!]). Anyways, a friend at school let me borrow his 80s cf road bike for a one mile ride and I was hooked. After 20years of not giving a care about bikes (my whole life), I had to get a road bike.
So here I am, one month later, with a Cannondale CAAD7 R700, riding away my winter break. YAY!
Thanks for all the info you unknowingly gave me. Hope to learn lots more!
