    No, I didn't know about. If it is a race my tank wouldn't keep up. However I would be the tortoise!

    Hey guys, just moved from the middle of Seattle to Sanford/Lake Mary, and I am damn depressed. I used to live on my bike, and now, its always driving wherever I go. Are any of you out here, or know of any group rides? I honestly dont care what kind; I do it all. road, mountain, bmx, trials. I just want to find some people to ride with and talk bikes.

    I've been looking at various groups in CFL, and these guys appear to be the most active: http://floridafreewheelers.com/ffw/, but there are others that are easy enough to find with a quick google search. Not sure what group it is, but almost every Saturday morning that I'm out that way, I see a rather large group on S.R. 434 & Tuskawilla Road in Winter Springs. I plan on joining the Florida Freewheelers once I pick up my bike and get comfortable on it.

    Trek 8.3 DS
    Giant Roam 2

    The roam has hydrolic brakes, where the trek doesn't. However the Trek LBS is literally 5min away versus 40 with the Giant dealer.

    I'm about 90% sure I'm going with the Giant.

    I'll be heading down to Deland/Orlando for a few days, and I'll be bringing my bike with me. Is there any decent riding in the area?
    I'm looking forward to getting away from this miserable georgia weather!

    Here's a link on Orange Cycle's website. Probably the best shop in Orlando.
    http://orangecycleorlando.com/articl...-florida-ig30/

    And another link -- http://www.outdoortravels.com/biking...ew_orlando.php

    Maybe others will post some more trail info.

    Welcome. You live right on the trail and only ride one day a week?

    I generally only ride the trail once or twice per week, but do other rides as well.

    I just saw your post.
    There is a whole bunch of good riding around the DeLand area.
    Send me a PM if you get this before or while you are here.

    Hey everyone! Inverness, FL checking in! I'm a noob to road cycling (1 week in!). Live around the corner from the Withlacoochee Trail, so far been riding daily 10+ miles at about 17 mph avg, thoroughly enjoying it!

    I haven't taken any pics of the bike yet, but I will tonight! I was actually just changing my tube, and was a little surprised the old front/rear tubes were 650 in a 700 tire. I didn't realize they were interchangeable.

    They're not interchangeable. Thats probably why you had a flat.

    Heh, that makes sense then! I have no idea why the previous owner put them in there... I picked up some conti 700 20-25's @ 42mm. Is there any reason to get long vs short valve stems? My bike has the stock Alex Race 28's with stock Conti ultra sport tires. Thanks!

    Ultra Sport tires is what my Raleigh had when I bought it in 1999. Those tires offer no flat protection, just a comfortable ride.

    They probably stock the longer valve stem to accommodate almost everyone. Both my bikes have 45mm? stems. I like it because there's plenty of stem for the pump head to grip when I'm inflating my tires.
