Hello everyone. I've started running to get back in shape. I was complaining to a couple of co-workers about some days I just dont feel like running. They said I should get a bike. They are both avid bike riders. Im a big guy at about 6'2 and now 345 lbs.. I was concerned that any bike would be able to hold me up. I loved bmx and mountain biking as a kid, and I knew I would enjoy cycling again. After three months of research I found a used 07 Caonnondale System Six Team edition. It has all 105 components except for the front de-railer its an Ultegra. The wheels are basic shimano wheels. The bike shop I got the bike from didn't have the petals I wanted or shoes in my size, so I bought come bmx flats just so i could take her out for a ride, while my petals and shoes are ordered. I'm looking forward to riding on the road and using another method to get back into shape. I was told that this bike was one of the best frames Cannondale made, but I dunno? Does anyone know if Cannondale has a lifetime warranty on this frame? Well here is a picture of her in my In-Laws garage.
Thanks for letting me introduce myself and I look forward to learning from the forum.
