hi - Calgary, Canada.

Hello all.
been on bikes since I can remember.
Lived in Scotland until 7 years ago, and already have a nice MTB here in Calgary, but really want to find a road bike now too.
I'm a huge Specialized fan, but also a cheap Scotsman, so trying to find a nice used something or other, Allez possibly.
I'm also 6 foot 5, so that limits choice somewhat.

My main use of my Rockhopper right now is taking 2 little kids in the Bell trailer for fun rides, but that sure does get the legs working !

I used to be able to do 100 mile runs in a day quite easily when I had a nice old school Raleigh Banana bike, and would love to get back to that level again....

Just take your time and work up little by little. You'll get back to it!
