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.
