I have finally purchased an actual bicycle as opposed to a piece of junk from a toy store. I bought an entry level Trek, the 3500, and now I'm cycling all over the Greater Boston area. Six rides in seven days.
I read a lot of threads when I was considering what to buy, so you guys have already been a lot of help. Thanks for that and I look forward to being part of the community, so to speak.
Trek 3500, that's a nice bike! I love that you've done 6 rides in 7 days
