    Hi from California

    Started riding again last year after a medical diagnosis. Started commuting via bike once in a while as well. Used to ride a 1994 Trek 850 mountain bike, then when I started back up I fixed it up some and rode that for road duty. Once I had hit 35 miles on that 20 year old heavy high drag bike with worn out bearings and components I decided to upgrade.

    I now ride a 2014 Trek Domane 2.0 in 60mm. I use SPD cleats/pedals as I want to tour so I run mild mountain bike shoes I can walk in. I am hoping to hit my first 50 mile ride this spring and perhaps a century... in miles, none of that easy metric stuff :-) .... by the fall otherwise next spring

    So that is my story.

    Thanks. I wish I could have afforded a nicer version but a 2.0 is a massive upgrade from what I had. Plus just getting started again I don't need better (just want). Now that its warming up, I am hoping to ride more often. Now to find some place with some elevation change. Its so flat where I am.

    Freedom is free. It's included in democracy. Democracy is hard. It involves dealing rationally with people you disagree with.

    Dead center almost. In Modesto actually. But I guess most people consider it northern CA.
