    Thanks, I just had my first real ride on it, a 30 mile out and back and love it. I don't miss the Shimano stuff at all.

    Made some changes to my bike, most were cosmetic in nature, and I'm loving the new toupe saddle.

    No white garage door, but a pretty background instead.

    Photoshop is cheaper than buying a saddle.

    New to road biking, I snagged a 2010 Gary Fisher Rail. Was looking at some Trek 1.1 or 1.2s but since the Fisher brand is being disolved completely into Trek I got a great deal on the bike. Technically somewhere between the 1.1 and 1.2 but for in or around the sale price of a 1.1. I am extremely pleased with this bike, but plan on swapping out the seat, taking out at least 1-2 spacers and perhaps a shorter stem down the line.

    My formal Hello to the forum





    edit. Sorry for the high contrast, I didn't have time to retake the overexposed shots and quickly photoshop'd them. Also, yes I know I have a few more stickers to remove

    @ supernoid:

    Flip. Also fix the bar angle. It doesn't look like it's straight.

    Otherwise nice looking bike. Does he make any carbon road frames? His website has been down for a while now

    Karbona 50mm tubulars. The decals were kinda cheesy so I just peeled them off.

    I'm planning on straightening the bar angle, not sure on flipping just yet. Is that mainly for looks or ? Also, http://fisherbikes.com/ they make 1 full Carbon the Chronus line and the Ion is a hybrid alum/carbon. The Rail that I have has carbon forks which was a nice bonus. I'm fairly certain that the Fisher line is just going away and soon you'll see Trek bikes stamped Gary Fisher Collection or something like that. Perhaps http://fisherbikes.com/ has been undergoing maintenance for the migration but who knows.

    Once I make some changes to my bike over the coming weeks I'll update with better pics.

    Thanks. I actually live right across the street from Yorba Regional Park so I simply just hop on my bike and cross into the trail Its my main stay for my current riding experience. I'm usually clad in black mainly, I'm waiting a bit before spending more money for gear. I'm sure we've probably already passed each other once or twice.

    Disposable income, and honestly (if you're talking about me) I'm transitioning from one hobby to another. I used to do long distance runs but developed bad runners knee. Its healed but it'll flair so my serious running had to come to an end (which is ok). With a 9 month old baby I hardly have time to justify driving to the gym, working out and driving back. I live across the street from a great trail and was able to justify spending the money for my bike by cancelling my gym membership and picking it up as my new means of exercise.

    I honestly started out with a hybrid, road it 2 weeks and realized that it wasn't fast enough, aggressive enough and that I was getting obsessed with the hobby very fast. I paid the difference to upgrade (within 30 days) and haven't looked back.

    But ultimately, it comes down to disposable income and a decent job.

    edit. Also, one of those awesome fandangled wives who says, "Get what you want." o_O

    "Disposable income"... he knows what my brains sayin'!

    I just want to know where all these gorgeous bikes go when they decide cycling ain't what they figured it was, haha

    Its just quite embarassing when i ride my beaterbike and call it road biking! (90's schwinn supersport, for those interested. Not sure what year)

    we've established somewhere down the line that its mostly about the guy with the legs rather than the bike with the wheels...no?

    actually im also quite interested to know where all these nice bikes go when a person decides they dont want to ride anymore, i'd love to have them

    Craigslist, and usually listed for prices almost exactly like new, only to find that people dont want to pay for a used "new" bike. So they eventually drop some. I see a ton of listings saying "I only rode this 3 times", for bikes from current or prior model year.
