Hi...I have been lurking for a while and decided to join up. I hopped on an older Trek bike this spring and instantly fell in love with cycling. I am an old dude of 44 years and never really enjoyed bike riding. I now realize I just never rode a decent bike. I went out and bought a 2011 Giant Rapid 3 and I love it. I also picked up and older Bianch Boardwalk (1991, I think) off of Craigslist and cleaned it up. That thing is awesome. I am hoping to upgrade to a really good road bike in a year or so.
