    Hey there from Chicago!

    Howdy!

    I'm a summer commuter and workout biker looking forward to getting into year-round cycling.

    About 4 years ago I started riding a Trek 7000 in the warm months, it was stolen after 2 summers from my apartment building basement (I forgot to set the U-lock during a week-long rainstorm while not riding). Following that, and still not having done any research on bikes I picked up a Trek 7100, which I rode for another 2 summers and was also stolen, this time from a friends back yard (also not locked, because I don't learn).

    Anywho, I got a Trek MultiTrack 720 ('96-'98ish) from a friend and want to convert the handlebars from grip-shift to drop but the cantilever brakes earned me an eye-roll from the LBS guy I consulted.

    So, that's it in a nutshell! I've been reading a lot here for the last couple weeks researching a new road bike purchase, and converting that 720 into a foul-weather/winter beater.

    I look forward to gaining some experience and hopefully getting into century rides next summer, and looking into the racing clubs I keep hearing about on the fringe of some of these threads.

    See you on the boards!

    Howdy! We also have the hybrid forum, it's pretty cool in there too (unless you already found out). Good luck on the new road bike purchase. Remember that fit is soooo important!
