I've been lurking as a registered user of this forum for a little while now, so I figured I'd introduce myself to the community.
I'm riding an '07 Trek 1000 that's 30 days old Friday. Pretty average story: used to be into cycling(mostly on a mountain bike, some BMX), then quit for some reason after I moved in '98. A couple of friends who are serious roadies got me back into it so I bought an entry level road bike(since all I had were MTBs) and hit the pavement, mostly to lose some pounds. A month later and about 35 pounds lighter(I hit the stationary bike first about three months ago) I'm loving it.
Besides that I live in NorCal, 24 years old, like long walks on the beach, SCUBA, etc. Love the forum, love the sport!
