Bikes: Only a Trek 750... For now...
New member, New rider.
My name is Daniel, I just picked up my first road bike (Actually a hybrid, or so I've been told) off of criagslist for $250. It is a Trek 750 white with red lettering and had after market performance road bike bars installed and she is in excellent condition. I decided to take up road biking (And in the future mountain biking, hopefully) because running isn't much fun and its more shocking on my knees than bicycling.
I'm currently enrolled in a tech school at the age of twenty five. I live close and started commuting to school in the mornings and taking an extended way home to keep the blood flowing for at least 45 minutes. I started that about a month ago. The Trek I knew wasn't anything special which is why I decided to start out on that. Cheap and I don't have a need or a clue for all the bells and whistles.
I'm interested in competition road bike sprint racing when I settle back into California in May. So I decided to sign up to a community that is knowledgeable and can help a new guy get acquainted with this sport.
That's me! Thanks in advanced and hello once again to everyone!
