Hello from MI

Some quick info about myself. I'm 27 and I've been riding single tracks and doing XC style "Mt. Biking" for the last 3.5 years. I had some guys I worked with who talked me into buying a bike ('06 Fisher Wahoo)and after a couple of trips to the trail, I was hooked. Shortly after that I found out how nice of a cross training activity it was for running (I've been a long distance runner for 15 years). Even before I got on the trails, I wanted to start riding on the roads. Well...after 3 years of waiting for the right time to purchase a road bike I finally picked one up about a week ago ('08 Felt F85). Now I'm trying to balance between getting my runs in during the week while also getting in time on the trails and the roads. I did a lot of research on this site when I was looking at road bikes and figured now was as good a time as any to finally introduce myself. Looking forward learning tons more from everyone out there!

Welcome, be sure to check in at the Great Lakes regional forums too.
What part of Michigan are you from and what trails do you ride?

Thanks everyone for welcoming me to the forums!!

@cyclodan - I will definitely check out the Great Lakes regional forums!! I'm from the GR area, so I mainly ride the trails on the west side of the state. Yankee, Cannonsburg, Ionia, Egypt Valley, etc. They're not spectacular, but they're better than sitting on the couch!
