Welcome to the forums. I love my Trek 1200, which is very similar to your 1.2. You are gonna love the difference in ride between your mtb and your roadie.

Hello JC66, as jsharr says, you will be floored by the difference in the two bikes. Let us hear when you get the new bike, all right?

Thank you

Thanks jsharr and East Hill. I can pick my pick up any time, just have a couple of 5k charity runs I need to stay focused on. Also being a 42yr old college student and having a full time job with mid terms rapidly approaching, I have to let the bike wait just a bit. I will have many questions I am quite sure. Once again thanks for the warm welcome.

Currently taking general ed classes, Algebra and english lit this semester. Goal of a degree in engineering either mechanical or electrical. Homework takes up much of my time, but still manage to ride about 100 miles a week and run another 20-25 per week mainly on treadmill after rides. Truly love riding wish I knew more and had more time for it.

You are doing very well to fit in the cycling and treadmill work--good luck with the midterms.
