Hi from Denver, CO

I started commuting about 13.5 miles each way to work this spring, using a road bike I picked up 20 years ago used.

I picked up a used Trek road bike off Craigslist for something a little lighter and more current. Didn't get the deal I thought I did, as I had to buy new chainrings, chain & cassette.

Still commuting, now that it's cold here -- 23F when I left this morning. I feel so much better on the days I ride in.

Hi xinco, it hasn't gotten anywhere near that cold where I am (Puget Sound), but it's still getting cold enough for the cold weather tights and warmer gloves. Still, it gets warm in the afternoons going up the hill .

Welcome to BikeForums, and don't hesitate to send me a PM if you have any questions.
