Greetings!

Hello, I've been lurking for a while, just got into Road biking about two months ago but just did my first century ride this past Saturday. I've picked up a lot of useful info on the forum. I'm new enough that I don't have a lot of info to share yet but I'm learning. Currently looking for a nice wheel upgrade for the S500's that came on my bike.

I have the bug.....

Hey tvonloss,

Welcome to Bike Forums from a Texas road rider.

What bike did you use on the century?

The bug is a consuming bug. My wife hopes to find a cure for me. I enjoy bike stuff. Its like Lord of the Rings, MY Precious = My bikes. Its all in fun and good health.

I used a Motobecane Immortal pro on the Century. I was with 3 other rides, we averaged 17.6 MPH, the ride was pretty flat but the wind made up for it. LOL

I don't understand how wind always finds a way to blow in my face! Weird
