As soon as i can figure out how to get my new 6700 Shimano parts to set with my TREK 5200 ill be ready to hit the road. ( I have shamano 600 on it now but its time to up grade0 I bought the bike about a year ago from a guy who road it ALOT. Many Races. and the set was just wore out. any how look forward to learning all there is to know if yall are willing to spread the word

Sounds like you have the beginnings of a plan for Tris, head in to the Triathlon Forum and make your self at home there. I'd recommend that you get one of the many books, like Park Tool Co., "Big Blue Book" or Lennard Zinn's, "Road Cycling Primer" to help you figure out anything about the component installation that stumps you. Our Mechanics Forum is always there for advice too.

Hi:
My son is an avid touring cyclist in Tokyo. He particularly likes riding his Ridley in Shikoku. I plan to join him riding around Japan one of these days. In fact, I may have talked myself into a ride from Tokyo to the Fuji Five Lakes area next spring. Enjoy riding in one of my favorite countries!
