Hello from the Palouse (WA)!

Hello all,

I am a graduate student (almost done!) and I got into road biking last year as a hobby, but I unfortunately caught the bug and I'm hooked. I'm riding a 2013 Trek 1.5 that I've upgraded somewhat (Bontrager RL Tubless wheel/tires, clipless pedals, WAY more comfortable saddle etc.) in hope to turn an entry level bike into a fairly formidable road demon! I'm sure I'll upgrade at some point (but the tubeless wheel set is coming with me)! I also ride a Specialized XC Comp for MTB when I have the chance. Anyway, I am looking forward to learning a lot of good info, and meeting other cyclists around!

Cheers!

P.S. Here's a picture of my baby! I know it's not the lightest or fastest bike out there but I think it's pretty awesome nonetheless!
