    Hi my name is Mike and I'm a bikeaholic

    I started off a comutting 2 springs ago 17 miles each way on a mtn bike and quickly realised that that just wasn't going to work. Picked up a 2010 Specialized secteur triple, my first road bike. started just commuting then turned into going everywhere on it. fast forward to today and i still have the secteur, though it has over 10,000 miles on it, and last week I picked up the 2012 Specialized Tarmac Elite Rival now they are calling for a foot of snow!!! what started as commuting has turned to obsession

    Welcome, just like you I thought a used mountainbike($80 flea
    market special) would be able to accomplish my 25 mile round
    trip commute. Let's just say I soon realized that a hybrid w/
    skinnier tires was better and later on that a roadbike was EVEN
    better. And don't worry about your obsession, around here that's
    normal
