I've been mountain biking for a few years and just recently got the bug for a road bike. After riding several, I decided on a Cervelo Soloist. My first ride was the Fairfax-Bolinas ride last Sunday, and I absolutely loved the feel of the bike. Compared to my mountain bike, which feels like a tank moving underwater on the road, this bike really moves. Tons of fun.
Anyway, it's an exciting new hobby for me. It's been a very long time since I've had a proper road bike.
