    Which bike ?

    From the newbie, name should not be confused with doing a ironman event but stuck from rockcrawling jeep.

    I currently commute 15 miles each way on an old Trek 930 single track. The ride is winning, so I am considering investing into a new bicycle. The current front runner is a K2 Mod 5.. I have two questions. How much easier will the commute be on a road bike? Is the K2 a good bicycle?

    A little more info on me. I would like to join a club and build up to a hundred mile ride. I am 50 yrs young and lost 120 lbs over the last year and a half. I started riding my bicycle for health reasons and to help keep the weight off.

    Thanks for any comments in advance (both pro and con)

    Hello Ironman--you can forage around in the 50+ forum, and also check in with the Clydesdale Forum. Those two places have quite a few people in your same situation, and they are happy to share their experiences.

    Also, definitely check out the SoCal forum. If you can't find a club down your way, you are seriously slacking!

    Welcome to BF!
