Just wanted to say hello and thanks to the members here for the great info. Been lurking for about a week picking up all kinds of great advice. Purchased a Specialized Tricross Comp that I'm picking up from the LBS in 30 minutes and I'm pretty excited! Got back into riding recently after a few years off my mountain bike (Rockhopper) and found myself riding much more road, hence the Tricross purchase. My fiance just got a Trek 7.2 and we've been doing a bunch of couple rides. Fortunately she's got great legs after 18 years of stationary bike workouts almost every night.
I may not post much (too busy riding and playing guitar), but thanks again to those who contribute here on BF!
