Greetings from Northern NJ...not exactly road bike haven. Originally from central NY state where I Logged many miles over the years on a '85 Trek 760, which I still own. I work fulltime in the I.T. field and a few nights a week at a bike shop.... mainly to support my biking habit. I have the opportunity to purchase a K2 Mod 4.0 for literally half price. I have a current post asking for some opinions/information on the current trend in frame designs: Compact geometry, carbon forks and seat stays, etc. Would welcome any input.
Hey Avivino,Great idea helpin at the shop and getting good deals.I would love it just to gain knowledge on fixing (not tearing up) me bikes.I think I can handle most jobs except messing with the bearing(I would have the manual in one hand) and wheel truing(I'll stay away from that one).I bought a basic tool kit but haven't had to do anything major...This is the place to get all kinds of opinions on bikes,but if you work in a shop,seems you already got the inside info ...KC
