about my upcoming bike purchase, looking at a spec sirrus or a trek 1200 or something similar so far.
I basicly want something as fast as I can get it that I think will stand up to some general riding (no off-road though), since some people i know are serious riders and i wouldnt mind doing some riding with them.
My current bike is starting to near the end of it's lifespan,
http://webuser.bus.umich.edu/tle/bike.jpg just a trek 830(from 1994) with a profile aerobar
(curved bar-ends that meet int he middle in an inverted 'V', sorta mimics what an aerobar would
look like in that spot).
Everyone's been a great help with all my newbie bike questions, and I have quite a few since
I haven't purchased a bike since 1994 (and that was just an old trek mountain bike)
A bit about myself, I work at U-M, in Ann Arbor, and I use my bike to get around town and stuff.
I play basketball and softball and i'm a huge baseball fan. I'm an avid computer gamer, and my favorite band that most people haven't heard of is Great Big Sea (http://www.greatbigsea.com)
Welcome aboard! Come out and ride with the AABTS.org on Saturdays. The ride is on Huron Parkway and goes out to Dexter and Chelsea. There is also a bike shop in Chelsea with a new name that a lot of cyclists in the AA area utilize. And, I was wondering if you could help me in a little matter. Both of my girls attended U of M and those student loans are affecting my current bike purchases, any way you can kind of erase them????
Hey, maybe I'll do just that once I end up getting my bike, or maybe even come out with my old mtb. What is the name of the bike shop btw? I'm always keen on recommedations as I'm still shopping around, especially since some of the bikes I'm interested in aren't in the ann arbor stores.
