Bought my first road bike last week. I have been riding a borrowed bike for a few rides, a Specialized Carbon Epic/Dura Ace from 1988, and it works great. But finally time to get my own bike. I ended up with a great deal on a Fuji Altamira SE frame and fork with all the components from an Altamira 3.0. Getting fitted this week but already did 35 miles on it and that went well.
Here is a pic of the bike. Going to get pedals Thursday and also get fitted. We did basics but the LBS said I should go ride it once or twice and then come back for a detailed fitting. She seems to climb well, I still have problems with wind slowing me down, but I did lead a small group for 5 or 6 miles today at 19+ so I am happy with what I can do so far. Planning on a 62 mile ride in July and a 101 mile ride in November.
