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.
