Mountain biker moves to Milwaukee, gets into road biking

Hellooo, forum. With my first real job (and certainly first real paycheck) after university I bought the mountain bike of my dreams--and likely the last mountain bike I'll ever ride--a Sovereign Blue '95 Klein Attitude. In 2005 I moved to the Milwaukee area. The "mountain" biking here is...well...not exactly what I was used to after Missouri, Northern California, and MD/DE/PA. So after gaining 20 pounds, this summer I finally got serious about buying a road bike. Stuck to the used market to get something I both liked and could afford, and landed myself a Silver Cloud Klein Aura. Still tweaking the fit & feel by trying different bars, stems and saddles, and not much outdoor riding left in this area til spring, but so far I love it! (The bike and the riding.)
