Hi from KY
My name is Derek. I've been riding for a little over a year now. I currently ride a POS mountain bike that I got for $120 from Target. I did my first century on in last November and it took 11 hours.
I ordered a Specialized Sirrus today. Can't wait to get it. Should be able to get my century time down to about 5-6 hours.
Nice job on the century on that boat anchor! That is commitment!
Welcome to Bike Forums, Derek!
I second the congratulations for finishing the century on a mountain bike. I have a Sirrus and I love it. Stop by the Hybrid forum and post a photo when you get your new bike.
