    newbie from Illinois

    Hello! My wife, who has been biking quite a bit for the past couple of years, has finally convinced me that I should join her. I have been riding an older Cannondale MTB, and recently got a Specialized Roubaix Triple, so hopefully I will be able to keep up with her on her OCR1. I should add that I am a desk jocky, and that she rides to work (13 mile round trip) and 30-40 mile rides on weekends and days off.

    Hello gandalf, your wife is an inspiration to you, is she not? Are you planning to start bike commuting as well?

    Oh, don't forget to stop in at the Great Lakes regional forum, as well.

    Welcome to BF!

    I doubt that I will commute...it's over 20 miles, the last several along a 55 mph highway full of gravel trucks. I would like to do some longer day trips on the weekends, however, and eventually a century.

    It's the one thing that I've found excessively dangerous! Gravel trucks... .

    Don't blame you one bit .
