Getting back into biking and furthering the experience.

Hey there, it's the Azimuth Cow from the Durango area. I am getting back into biking after an 8 year absence. I decided that I really needed to persue it for it had been a passion from infancy to young adulthood.

I already owned a Specialized Expedition, but it really doesn't do me any good living on highway and in mountain ranges. So I took the plunge and bought a Motobecane Fantom Pro 29er and love it. I am using it to train for future XC races and utilize while I gather more change to do a scandium, Ti or carbon build for XC racing (much lighter than the current).

I happened to get off of work early and went to the Velo Bike Swap that is held every year before the Iron Horse (which I fear may be cancelled tomorrow since it is snowing, we will see). I scored a killer find, a scandium frame, Felt F1 road bike frame with carbon fork. It was a mere $125! Aside from some rashing to the paint, and a minor ding high on the frame, it's an amazing find. I am going to rebuild this and train for my own future Iron Horse entry. Hooray!

Anyways... hello from Durango! Population 1 Azimuth Cow.
