Helo from Albany NY

Hi All, I'm rediscovering the joys of biking. I rode all over heck and back as a teenager, but haven't done any riding for the past 30+ yrs. I wanted to get back into it, so I bought a Trek Pilot 2.1 s.p.a with clips. I have a bad left sit bone so I've been going through seats, finding the right one. As a kid, I rooked and used my brothers Brooks saddle, which formed so perfectly to me it was like I didn't know I was sitting. So I recently purchased a Brooks 17 saddle and am using ties to attach the Topeak. Haven't done much riding yet this year as it's still pretty cold and so windy, I could barely breath on this morn's ride. But hopefully I'll be out there regularly riding around. :-) Hope to gain a lot of info from the forum. Cheers!

Pete

Hi Pete,

I live in Clifton Park and am also new to the forum. So new, in fact, that I haven't even gotten a bike yet. But I'm psyched to get into the cycling world. Maybe I'll see you around the Albany area.

Hi Mattchuck2,

Well, if you're like me, it'll take a while to get your bike. I did a lot of reading up on them and went to just about every bike store around and rode evey model I could. I really wanted to buy from DownTube in Albany - those guys are the greatest and most helpfull. It was late in the year, and I wanted to try out the Pilot model, but they didn't have any, and couldn't get any more from Trek. I found mine at a store up in Queensbury (same road their mall is on - I forget the name)... they had the Pilot - I tried it... really liked it... and they knocked several hundred off the price, so I bought it. My model yr has Ultegra front and rear deraillieurs - I noticed Trek downgraded the front in the next model yr. Watch the guys at the Queensbury store though - the tall, older, slender salesguy could sell ice to an eskimo :-) Luckily, I got out of there with just the bike and the Topeak bag.

Good luck in your search
Pete
