Grace and Peace

Hey this is Rob. I'm a pastor who has just recently taken up road biking. I started with a bikes direct Mercier with ultegra 58cm which turned out to be a bit too small for me and have recently gone classic with a Team Carbon Miyata 1993 60cm frame and my ultegra group. I have enjoyed riding the Blue Ridge Parkway and have done both Mt. Pisgah and Mt. Mitchell climbs for Asheville as the starting point (about 55 mile roundtrips). I have also done the Skyline Dr. in VA.

The only problem I have found with Road Biking is the dogs. We have particular breed down here part pitt bull, chow, and lab.

I have had problems finding a saddle that works perfect and have invested a good bit of money trying different ones out. Currently I have a Selle Italia Flight Kevelar, but recently purchased a Selle San Marco Regal Ti.

Got four kids and smoking hot wife - so hey Ya'll! or as the Apostle Paul would say grace and peace to you.

Welcome Rob.
Sounds like you're about 6'-2" or 6'-3" if a 60cm fits.
