Hi -- I'm a 43-year old ex-Cat 2 racer emerging from retirement; I live in New England. I also do some local triathlons (up through half-ironman). Love the sport -- need it for sanity -- and have gotten a lot of useful information by perusing the forums here over the years. My bikes: Serotta CRL (8-speed D-A), Merckx MX Leader (Record 10), and for triathlons/TTs a Cervelo P3C. I had a Trek Madone 6.9SSL that was just destroyed by a car (his fault), so I have replaced that with a Parlee Z4 (SRAM Red/D-A, Zipp 404 with Powertap). More bikes than I need (if you're interested in the Merckx, let me know...), but life is a cycle and cycling is life. Cheers.
