Hello everyone i'm a relatively new cyclist from Ohio. 3 years ago i was introduced into the world of cycling, sort of. I had just bought what i thought at the time was a premium bike, it was a Trek 7100 at the cost of 450$. At that time i started riding and immediately fell in love with the sport. After that in July i started watching the Tour De France and everyday i rode the 7100 i knew that i was a rode cyclist at heart. The next year i bought a Giant Defy Alliance 1 and have not looked back. I put in about 1500-1600 miles my first two summers of riding and hope to do more this year. I am into racing and wrenching on bikes. I just got done with the Park Tool maintenance school at the bike shop that i go to and love it! Looking forward to hearing what everyone has to say and talking about this great sport!
