    Hello from Ohio!

    Hi all.

    Been lurking the site for a while without posting. I had considered cycling for quite some time, but finally bought a road bike at the first of this month to get in better shape and have some fun. I certainly have the bug. For being out of shape (5'10/240) as I am, I'm loving the results I've seen. I'm close to 100 miles on the bike already and craving more.

    Happy to be here and soak up all of the information and advice that I can.

    I've had several since 1999 but have settled on my beloved 2001 Litespeed Tuscany and my latest, a 2013 Cannondale CAAD 10.

    Thanks! I bought a Trek Pilot from a friend who had bought another bike. It worked out right and I got a great bike for a fraction of what I was going to spend on a new one to get started. I love it.

    Hey Buckeye, welcome to Bike forums. That's a quality bike you ride. Enjoy.

    Greetings from the desert SW around Las Vegas. And all this from a YODER from Holmes CO. Who knows you could be my cousin.
    I think its disgusting and terrible how people treat Lance Armstrong, especially after winning 7 Tour de France Titles while on drugs!

    I'm south (or west of you) on 62 a little ways. Not too far away at all, really.

    I am also a clumsy Clyde rider, not saying anyone else is. I really enjoy tooling around on both a road and Mountain bike. Have found a ton of tools riding the power line roads. That's a plus for a good ride.
