Hello from Iowa

Thought I should say I. Very cool site, got pointed here from a telemark forum I frequent. I just made the jump from mountain biking to the road bike. I picked up a Cannondale CAAD8 (in extra fast red ). I gotta say I'm hooked already.

Hello CYLax, yes, that Cannondale is extra fast in red! Before you know it, you will have as many bikes as I do--assuming you have the room for them .

Welcome to BF!

Oh man, that's what I was afraid of...if I start collecting bikes then my skis will get jealous...then who knows what will happen

There is always room for more toys at my place

I'm up to 12 bikes, and there's barely enough room...skis? Are you talking water or snow?

Wow, quite the collection. I only have two, mtb and my cannondale. I ski on both water and snow, but the collection is all snow skis.

I also came from the world of mtbing - now I do both, as well as some cyclocross stuff. Many welcomes, and yes - you are indeed hooked.

Well, that's where the bikes come in--they fill in those long hours without snow.

You know, perhaps that's why I've got 12 bikes--one for each month... .
