Hello from SE Texas

Native Houstonian over here.

I did some BMX in the past, but the bike has been sitting for ages. I recently picked up a Cannondale M400 from a friend who didn't like it.

So far it has an Easton seat post (with a new seat I just got. I can't remember the brand right now), Easton MonkeyLite CS2 carbon bars, and I switched to 26x1.50 Nimbus Kevlar tires. I also have a Polar CS100 computer.

I can tell that having straight bars is tough already. I'll add some bar ends to give me some more comfort on long rides.

I want to get a real road bike, but for now, this $200 bike will work just fine. I also hope to run in the 2010 MS150. Maybe I'll have a nice new road bike by then, or else I will suffer on my M400!

Hope to learn a lot here and meet some good people.

Welcome, fellow Texan. I'm using a mountain bike as a road bike too.

Thanks. At least I know I am not the only person suffering!
