Newbie from IL

Hi all,

My name is Linda. I reside in the suburbs of Chicago. I have a renewed interest in cycling (was into it awhile back, then quit)...so I thought I would join this forum seeking some advice and tips. I will be doing my first triathlon (sprint distance) this August, so I'm currently in the market for a new bike. The only bike I have right now is an older Trek Navigator 300, which just isn't going to cut it as a Tri bike. Looking forward to gaining some knowledge from this site!

Hi Linda, the Navigator may have it's good points, but blazing fast speed is NOT one of them . What are you looking at as a replacement?

Welcome to Bike Forums, Linda!

My first bike was the Navigator. Then I moved onto a cross country full suspension, then a hardtail, then an all mountain bike.

All of a sudden I got brave and ventured into the skinny tire world!! Got my first road bike, then a hybrid. All in two years.

Good luck to you! Cycling is a lot of fun and there are alllllllllll types of bikes out there. One step at a time and next thing you know, you will have a whole stable of different bikes, each having their own purpose.

And by the way, I still ride my Navigator. I took this picture right before I took it out last week.
