    New here from Texas

    I bought my first bicycle since childhood last Fall. A 2013 Trek Madone 2.1. Loved the bike. Unfortunately, I had a bike accident a couple of weekends ago during a triathlon avoiding a truck that wasn't supposed to be there and the bike got damaged more than me. I got severely bruised butt muscles after landing on my head then both butt muscles at the same time. I'm on the way to 100% recovery.

    I posted in the Racing forum about shopping for a replacement bike. Looking to get back to riding after two weeks off. I'll be doing group rides and training for another triathlon. Sticking with a road bike due to training and group rides take up a higher percentage usage than actual triathlon races.

    Hi, welcome to BF, too bad about the crash, I'm glad you weren't hurt badly. Best of luck on the new bike search.

    Sorry about the accident. Hope you heal fast. Can't help but wonder if you ever considered mt biking? A lot less traffic, if you don't mind the different style of riding.
    2-Wheelers! Seize the Day. Put tread to the dirt and ride into the fray.

    Dallas area. I'm sticking with a road bike. I can use it for group rides and triathlons.

    I really don't have any interest in a mountain bike. I'll stick to the roads. Living in Dallas, I see more opportunities for riding on roads and paved bike trails.
