    Just broke through the first 100 miles on my ride

    Got my Trek Soho S Friday Oct 15th

    haven't ridden or worked out for a while(over a year for working out longer for any biking)

    built up rides from 10 miles to 20 then 30

    did 23 miles today

    officially have put the first 100 miles on my bike

    feels good to be doing something

    next milestone is 500

    You do not need a carbon road bike to do a century.

    ride != a bike

    If you guys are curious, most basic computers have a long-term odometer that keeps a running total (not just distance from the last reset).

    Guys, a century on a fixed gear is serious business. Many have done it, but it's obviously not as easy as with a geared bike with a freewheel. I have a buddy that's a BIG FG advocate. Probably one of the biggest proponents around. Thinks FGs are somehow gonna save the world. Very strong rider. He did a century fixed...and said he would never EVER try that again.

    more lies

    all depends on the gear and the terrain and the time taken and the rider and the number of stops... did your buddy try to go over a mountain range or average 22mph?
