Greetings from Lima, Ohio
My name is Aaron Curl and I just got back into biking may of this year. I currently ride 20 miles 5 times a week and preparing for a century ride in to weeks. Glad to be here.
I ride a 2002 specialized rockhopper. I mountain biked all over ohio for about 2 years from 02 - 04. Then I quit riding. I got back into it may of this year, only this time I have been on the road. I have 1.2 inch slicks on it and have upgraded every part on the bike to be lighter. In fact the only thing stock on it is the stem! It still weighs 25 pounds! I have worked myself up to averaging 18 mph on my daily 20 mile rides. Next spring I'm stepping up to a road bike in the 2000 dollar range. Biking is the most addictive thing I have ever done in my life!
