I live in Central Indiana and have always loved bikes. I picked up a Trek 7100 from my LBS about 5~6 years ago and put a LOT of miles on it before I had to put it in storage due to moving to a location where there really were no safe places to ride.
I recently got the bike out of storage and got it tuned up and ready to go - needed a new chain but the tires were still in good shape [not hard or dry-rotted surprisingly].
Been going on 3~5 mile bike rides lately just to warm myself back up to it as I'm about 50 pounds heavier than I was when I got the bike and 50 pounds heavier than I'd like to be.
That said it's been raining so darn much I've not really been able to get out. I don't mind getting wet/riding in the rain but I need a good set of fenders to keep from ruining my clothing with dirty water/mud spray.
