i'm just getting back into biking after a 4-5 year hiatus (almost all of college i didn't bike at all). my bike up until that point was a 1995 trek 850 with minor upgrades- avocet tires, minor upgrades to components as the stock ones failed one by one.
i've really started getting on a health kick as the spring is beginning and i truly miss being out on a bike and the feeling of freedom that comes with it...so i made a purchase on ebay a couple days ago, a 1998 trek 7500 frame with tons of upgrades to make it a near-perfect bike for what i will use it for (mostly road and some light trails).
that's the bike i purchased. my fiancee will also start biking for her first time- she has never been on anything but a wal-mart quality bike until now, and we're debating purchasing a new trek 7200fx from our LBS here in westminster, MD.
looking forward to learning a lot from everyone here!
