I have been lurking for quite a while and thought now would be a good time to jump in. I am currently riding a 2006 Trek 1500 that I have put a set of Ksyrium SL's on. I rode a Panasonic DX-1000 to death in college and hadn't ridden seriously for many years. I am going to buy a full suspension mountain bike in the spring and try to keep up with some of my friends that are mountain bikers. I have gotten my wife involved this year and we are currently shopping for a tandem so that we can actually enjoy each others company when we ride. I am looking forward to learning a lot here!
