I am new to cycling and have been lurking here for the past week or so. I decided to do a traithlon this October to get in better shape so I have been training pretty hard and losing weight. I am riding a 2009 Jamis Ventura Comp that I just bought new and only have 145 miles on it so far in 2 weeks. I also started at 220lbs and between training and eating right over the past two months I am now down to 202lbs. Hope to meet some of you and ride some time.
