Just wanted to drop a line and introduce myself. I have been watching the site over the last couple of weeks (along with a couple of others) since I have decided to start riding again. I took about a 8 year leave of cycling to race off road motorcycles. I have recently decided that I am too old and brittle(I'm 29) to with stand that abuse for much longer. Last fall I purchased a specialized fsr pro comp for riding on the trails and have in the last few weeks decided to buy a road bike. I have also set a few weight loss and distance goals for the new year. Wish me luck! Thanks.
